With strategies contemplating unforeseen possibilities and the opportunity to assess options in protecting, strengthening and transferring assets to the next generation, our attorneys advise and guide on all aspects of business succession and estate planning law, including:

  • Asset Protection
  • Business Succession
  • Charitable Giving
  • Elder Law

  • Our succession plans for closely-held businesses aim to balance between lifetime tax-advantage transfers of assets versus retaining decision-making authority. We devise these plans to allow for future contingencies and changed circumstances, trustee designations and distributive provisions that match the intent of the grantor, and aim to avoid gift and estate taxes, as well as confidentiality.
