Many of our estate planning clients are also business owners. Business planning often goes hand-in-hand with estate planning, and each requires careful coordination with the other. We frequently assist clients with the various stages of a business, ranging from the formation of a start-up company to the continuous management of a well-established entity. We advise clients of the tax and practical considerations of different types of entities and provide services to keep the business going. We work with our clients to achieve their business objectives efficiently and effectively. Our services include:

  • Entity selection
