Wills, Trusts, and Estates

Beggs & Lane has a long tradition of assisting individuals, families and closely held businesses with their estate planning needs. Our practice is concentrated on estate planning and administration, advising individuals and families in situations that involve federal estate and gift tax, as well as the laws affecting personal relationships and property rights. Our lawyers have significant experience with charitable planning and the formation and operation of private foundations. We assist our clients in planning for and navigating some of the most challenging life and business transitions, and we are adept at structuring estate plans that take into account sensitive family issues, as well as complex tax and financial issues. We also serve as trusted advisors to corporate trustees and other financial institutions on fiduciary matters and disputes with beneficiaries.
