- When unforeseen circumstances threatened a decedent's estate plan, we obtained a court order from the circuit court judicially modifying the decedent's irrevocable trust with over $10 million in assets ensuring the decedent's intent was preserved as to the management of assets for multiple generations while minimizing federal transfer taxes.
- Prepared irrevocable trusts for the benefit client's descendants to hold gifted stock of closely held business interest. Subsequent sale of the closely held business to a public company resulted in tens of millions of dollars held in trusts for the benefit of client's descendants, excluded from client's estate for state and federal transfer tax purposes, and protected from potential creditors of client and descendants.
