Overview

For more than 20 years, Greg has helped clients preserve financial legacies. Greg counsels high-net-worth individuals, family office administrators, business owners, entrepreneurs and investors on a broad range of estate planning matters. He designs estate and gift tax plans, and succession planning strategies that promote asset protection and minimize gift, estate and generation-skipping taxes. Greg also administers probate estates, prepares gift and estate tax returns, and handles a variety of transactional and other matters for owners of closely held businesses. 

Intra-family transfer of wealth is often an emotionally charged process. Greg understands the complicated dynamics that can exist within families that are facing important financial decisions. He draws on his negotiating skills and common sense approach to help clients align their individual interests, and create agreement across generations and family groups. And when necessary, he helps resolve conflicts through formal negotiations, settlements and litigation.

Family wealth preservation often involves a team of financial specialists. Greg can draw on his extensive network of accountants, financial advisors, bankers and family law professionals to build the team best suited for each client’s needs. 

Greg previously served as Vice Chair of the Wealth Transfer & Succession Planning group and currently serves as a member of the firm’s Management Committee.
