We assist owner-managers to maximize reasonable compensation, to overcome estate tax problems produced by growth and to develop programs to retain the services of key employees. Our attorneys work with families to establish mechanisms to shift control from one generation to another, and to handle control after the death of the head of the family.Real Estate
The firm effectively handles real estate transactions of all magnitudes from residential real estate closings to complex commercial transactions.
We have an active practice in the area of family and matrimonial law. While negotiating such matters is always preferable, we are prepared to litigate aggressively when settlement cannot be achieved.
