“My job often addresses the nexus of many, often conflicting, challenges for my clients. They want to provide financial stability for descendants while keeping them motivated to lead engaged, productive lives. Much of their wealth consists of their family owned business; they want to reward children who help grow it, but also ensure that children who don’t work in it are treated fairly. They have a profound commitment to charitable giving and want to maximize their impact. They would like their vacation home to be enjoyed by future generations but don’t want their estate plan to create friction among family members. These issues are not easy, but nor are they new. For over 150 years we have helped generations of clients achieve their personal and family goals.”
