Estate Administration

EVW’s Trusts & Estates Group represents individual and corporate executors and trustees in all aspects of  estate administration,  lifetime trusts and testamentary trusts. We advise executors and trustees on tax planning, fiduciary duties, marshaling and distributing assets and dealing with legatees and beneficiaries. We work closely with private banking and trust departments of many banks and trust companies in New York and with many others around the world. When needed, work is done in tandem with law firms in other state jurisdictions and foreign countries.

EVW’s attorneys also represent directors and officers of charitable corporations and private foundations. Our services include preparation of fiduciary income tax returns, federal and state estate tax returns, and accountings, and we are highly experienced in handling all aspects of settlement of estates and trusts and representing executors and trustees in tax audits.
