Estate Planning And Business Succession

At the Finley Law Group, we offer a wide range of business planning, counseling, and litigation services for a variety of entities and individuals, particularly in connection with family businesses, privately held businesses, and emerging businesses.

We are especially qualified to serve the needs of entrepreneurs because we are able to coordinate personal and business finances in designing tax-minimizing estate plans that deal with the succession of business ownership, intellectual property, and other business issues in ways that benefit the family and the business.


We also assist in asset-protection planning by arranging access, control, management, and ownership of assets to preserve value for the family or business against the risk of claims by creditors.


We additionally offer a full range of estate planning and succession services, helping to structure our clients’ financial affairs to increase the legacy to their families by minimizing the taxes to be paid upon death.


We have helped hundreds of clients of various levels of wealth and degrees of estate complexity using a full spectrum of estate planning devices including:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Charitable Giving
  • Family Limited Partnerships
  • Limited Liability Companies
  • Marital Property Agreements
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Advance Directives
  • Business Succession Plans
  • Other ancillary documents related to wealth of various magnitudes and degrees of complexity.

In addition, we handle all facets of estate and trust administration. As part of that process, we prepare and file federal estate and gift tax returns, advise and represent clients undergoing tax examinations, and guide the distribution of trust and estate assets. Our work includes the removal and appointment of executors and trustees and the representation of fiduciaries and beneficiaries in litigation.
