Estate Planning Focus – Spring 2022

From the Chair - Jennifer Remondino

Our T&E practice continues to grow, and we have welcomed three new attorneys to our practice group recently. We are delighted to introduce you to Haley Clough, Erin Lasenby and Molly Williams.

Haley has a well-rounded background in T&E work, and she also has an extensive background in real estate. Erin’s practice focuses on tax compliance and strategy and creating uniquely-tailored tax planning for families, their businesses and their family offices. Molly concentrates her practice in both T&E and family law, and she helps families navigate challenging issues and plan for life-changing events.
