Trust & Estates - Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck

At Brownstein we work closely with wealthy families and individuals to provide a coordinated, full-service approach to managing the legal issues affecting their businesses and families. 

Our Trust & Estates Group can function as your family’s general counsel, quarterbacking efforts to protect and extend your family’s prosperity. In collaboration with the firm’s corporate lawyers, we advise our clients and their businesses as they create, grow, manage, preserve and dispose of wealth. While our corporate lawyers focus on growing and improving your business, we focus on how the business’ success will affect your family.

Our group concentrates on estate planning, trust and estate administration, representation of fiduciaries in an advisory capacity and trust and estate litigation. Our estate planning services include comprehensive planning, preparation and implementation of trusts, wills and other appropriate documents. In the trust and estate administration area, we help manage decedents’ trusts and estates, counsel institutional and individual fiduciaries as personal representatives, and represent family members and charitable institutions so they can understand, undertake and enforce their rights and obligations. In the event a dispute arises, we have the trust and estates litigation experience necessary to effectively represent our clients.

Our Trust & Estates Group includes attorneys with decades of experience understanding how tax laws affect multi-generational wealth transfers, as well as extensive experience working with entrepreneurial individuals to integrate their estate and business plans. Our experience leads to quality and, from your perspective, peace of mind.
