Experienced Lawyer Counselling on Wealth Transfers in Stamford, Connecticut
Experienced Estate Planning, Trust and Gifting Law Firm
Serving Connecticut and New York
Wealth transfer and estate planning is much more than drafting wills and trusts. We can design wealth transfer strategies to meet your individual needs. Whether you want to transfer your wealth while you are still living, minimize taxes, or make sure those you designate as the beneficiaries—charities, children, or grandchildren—get as much of your wealth as possible, Richard A. Sarner, Esq., will work with you to determine which vehicles are right for you.
Our Estate Planning, Trust Creation, and Wealth Transfer Strategies
At the Richard A. Sarner, Esq., we employ different methods, depending on the size of the estate, tax planning, and most important, the specific needs of our clients. For instance, if you have a business that you want to keep in the family, but are concerned about passing on possible environmental liability, we offer solutions to help you protect the individual beneficiaries from personal liability. We have a large number of wealth transfer tools at our disposal, including:
- Family Limited Partnerships (FLP) and Family Limited Liability Companies (FLLC)
- Charitable Lead Trusts (CLUTs, CLATs)
- Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts (GRATs)
