T. James Lee
DIRECTOR




Jim practices in the areas of estate planning, business design and structuring, and commercial transactions, including tax planning, corporate, partnership, LLC, real estate, and international matters. He counsels clients on wealth transfer strategies, the use of trusts, commercial business entities, family limited partnerships and LLCs, installment sales to grantor trusts, and other sophisticated tax planning techniques. 

As an adjunct to his estate planning practice, Jim advises clients on planned giving methods, and establishing charitable trusts, foundations, and other tax-exempt organizations. He also advises trustees and executors on their fiduciary responsibilities and tax implications in the administration and distribution of trusts and probate estates.

In designing estate and business plans, Jim applies an integrated approach enabling his clients to reduce personal and business liability exposure, minimize tax consequences, and meet multi-generational family objectives. Estate planning documents and business succession plans can be tailored to provide incentives to beneficiaries and successors (such as children and grandchildren) to become productive and contributing members of society. Incorporating each client’s unique family dynamic into such planning is emphasized.
