Our estate planning advice is designed with a view to furtherance of dispositive wishes with a focus on creditor protection, governance considerations and transfer-tax minimization strategies. We frequently service multiple generations of family clients and support them through all stages of the complex process, including generation-skipping transfer tax and post-death considerations. We also collaborate closely with our client’s other advisors, whether they be accountants, local counsel, financial advisors or members of the client’s family office, to ensure a consolidated approach.
For our international clients, we also can assist with navigating immigration processes, as well as with expatriation and pre-immigration planning.
We also have extensive experience with in-and out-of-court dispute resolution involving contested probate and estate and trust litigation matters in U.S. and non-U.S. jurisdictions.

We provide corporate advice at all stages of the corporate life cycle, from formation through compliance, restructuring and liquidity events. Our clients include companies ranging from those in the Fortune 500 to startups across a range of industries. Our lawyers also regularly advise on direct investments in blue-chip assets and real estate projects, companies, venture capital and private funds. We also advise our clients with respect to ERISA and employee compensation and benefits.
Curtis offers private client services to a wide array of tax-exempt and non profit entities, both in the U.S. and abroad. This includes formation of various philanthropic vehicles with a wide range of charitable objectives. We also counsel our charitable clients in respect of tax considerations, regulatory requirements and the myriad issues that may arise during the operation of a charitable endeavor.
Tax laws and policies continually evolve with an ever-growing net of tax treaties and regulatory requirements. Curtis attorneys offer creative solutions and timely analysis of tax implications on a domestic or cross-border basis for all transactions and operations of private clients, as well as identify new opportunities and resolve potential issues.
