Estate Planning and Probate
With extensive experience in state and federal tax law, the probate, trust and estates attorneys at Manier & Herod in Nashville offer close coordination with lawyers in the corporate and business areas to provide the best possible service to individual and corporate clients.
Our knowledgeable Tennessee lawyers work closely with trustees, corporate trust departments, executors and other fiduciaries to provide advice throughout all phases of trust and estate administration.
Given the combined, specialized tax and business knowledge of our legal team, much of the firm’s practice in this area is centered on providing advisory and support services in connection with the administration of complex probate estates and sophisticated trust structures, including various charitable and non-charitable remainder trusts, annuity trusts and unitrusts.
We also represent many clients in specialized state trust matters, such as creation and administration of asset protection trusts (or “Tennessee Investment Services Trust”), the formation of community property trusts, and the minimization of taxation and other liability exposures using trust structures.
