Trusts And Estates

Keane & Beane, P.C.’s estate planning attorneys help families prepare for the transfer of wealth to later generations and administer decedents’ estates. We counsel a wide range of clients on planning the accumulation, conservation and distribution of an estate to best accomplish tax and non-tax objectives. We draft wills, trusts, family limited partnerships, living wills, health care proxies and powers of attorney to fully address estate planning needs and achieve maximum estate & income tax efficiency. We also represent clients in contested probate, accounting and turnover proceedings.

Many of our clients are owners of closely held businesses with unique planning issues. We counsel them on business continuation plans, as well as valuation, estate freezing opportunities, deferred payment of estate taxes and the utilization of tax qualified benefit plans to mitigate estate tax consequences.

Our attorneys are active in the Estate Planning arena, and have held leadership positions on the Estate Planning Council of Westchester. We regularly present on these issues at the New York State Bar Association and are active in the Associations’ Trusts & Estates Section.

Important Advantages for Clients

Our attorneys, many of whom are known authorities in the closely related area of Elder Law, are loyal and accessible to all clients. When necessary, we can address our clients’ more sophisticated and complex needs by drawing on the knowledge of related practice areas such as Business Transactions.
