Our succession planning includes restrictive stockholder and partnership agreements, reorganizations of corporations and a variety of other arrangements. The Firm assists individual clients in personal estate planning to transfer assets efficiently to their chosen beneficiaries. Estate Planning of this nature often focuses on providing for family members, protecting the assigned assets and ensuring professional management of these assets. Personal estate planning takes into account the impact of federal income, estate, gift and generation-skipping taxes on the passage of wealth. It frequently means establishing trusts for a surviving spouse, as well as trusts for children and grandchildren, to achieve tax savings. We also use many forms of charitable giving to reduce taxes significantly.
