Estate Planning and Administration


Estate Planning & Administration

At Allen & Gooch, our approach to estate planning and administration begins with this simple recognition: our clients have invested their lives in building their businesses. Our challenge is to help them preserve the wealth they have created so that it can benefit future generations. Accordingly, our estate planning specialists draw on the full range of sophisticated estate-planning tools to set the stage for the orderly transfer of our clients’ property and to minimize the tax burden of their estates.

Sophisticated Wealth Transfer and Preservation

Before they make a recommendation, Allen & Gooch estate planning experts make sure they have an inclusive understanding of their clients’ tax, financial, and relevant personal circumstances. In each instance, our goal is to provide comprehensive estate planning tailor-made to meet individual circumstances and priorities.

As these circumstances and priorities change with time, Allen & Gooch stands ready to help clients reformulate their estate planning strategies to meet evolving needs. In addition, we regularly assist both individual and corporate fiduciaries with all aspects of estate and trust administration.
