Estate planning Estate planning is the process of creating a master plan for the management of property during life and the distribution of that property at death. Done correctly, estate planning should give you more control over your assets, provide you with care if you become disabled, and ease the transfer of wealth when you want and to whom you want, at the lowest possible cost. Estate planning involves drafting wills and trusts and has close ties to risk management. It attempts to transfer wealth successfully, minimize transfer taxes, and protect assets. Charitable giving is also an important component of estate planning. While financial professionals can supervise the estate planning process, some activities must be performed by estate planning attorneys. We may work closely with an attorney to manage your estate planning needs. An effective estate planning will be well coordinated with your overall plans for your business, investments, insurance and taxation needs, and your retirement goals.
