We have decades of experience counseling individual clients, family groups, fiduciaries and charitable organizations in a wide range of services related to business, tax and estate planning. Our attorneys both represent parties in fiduciary litigation and counsel fiduciaries in the administration of trusts and estates.
Careful estate planning can help loved ones avoid a costly probate process. HSPRD works closely with clients to establish virtual family office (VFO) structures and create plans that minimize estate and inheritance tax. Our attorneys counsel clients on generational transfers, negotiate and draft pre- and post-nuptial agreements, negotiate divorce settlements and draft family partnerships and trusts.
Our firm develops structures for hedge funds, private equity and venture funds and can represent each in securitization and portfolio transactions. We have experience with foreign and leveraged feeder funds, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), securities law requirements and foreign and domestic blockers to accommodate certain types of investors and satisfy tax requirements.
