Wealth Management and Estate Planning
Given our extensive experience on wealth management, family and estate planning, our firm can provide the best structure to protect and organize the assets of a broad range of clients, including those with inherited wealth, owners of closely-held businesses and international clients, taking into account specific situations as well as the market as a whole.
We advise clients in all aspects of estate planning, including transfers of assets, multi-generational succession planning, complex estate-related litigation, administration of private foundations and public charities, charitable giving, among other areas. As a full-service law firm, we adopt an inter-disciplinary approach and work closely with our tax, corporate, litigation, labor, civil law and other practice groups as well as outside investment advisors, insurance planners and accountants to ensure a coordinated and efficient approach to cover all of our clients’ needs.
