Business Succession Planning
Determining how and when to pass ownership of a family- or privately-owned business can be complicated and stressful.

We assist business owners with making a smooth transition of their ownership interests and management control, whether a transition is the result of a planned retirement or an untimely illness or death.
Divorce And Creditor Protection
Your wealth and your assets deserve the utmost protection, but they may be targeted by creditors or awarded to a divorcing spouse if you fail to take the proper precautions. We help individuals structure their estates with divorce and creditor protection in mind.
Trust And Estate Litigation
While our firm always aims to deliver effective counsel to try to resolve disputes without using litigation, our trust and estate litigators are more than capable of representing the interests of individuals, fiduciaries and beneficiaries in court, no matter the scope or complexity of a case. We represent clients in complex estate, trust and guardianship controversies related to matters of investment, management and distribution. Our experienced and knowledgeable attorneys can navigate the intricacies of probate laws and the court rules that govern estates and trusts to implement a successful litigation strategy.
Employee Benefits And Executive Compensation
Our attorneys have experience using nonqualified deferred compensation (NQDC) plans to defer and reduce income tax on earnings. We counsel our clients on compliance with Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 409A, which regulates NQDC plans by imposing steep penalties for violations. Our firm can also provide guidance and support on many different employment law matters, including wage and hour issues, employee separation agreements, general releases, employee handbooks and general employment counseling.
Tax Controversy And Disputes
Disputes with tax collection entities like the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) can quickly make your life much more difficult. When you become the focus of an audit, we can help you navigate the complexities involved to ensure you and your estate remain as protected as possible.
