INSURANCE ANALYSIS AND RISK MANAGEMENT

WEALTH MANAGEMENT AND ESTATE PLANNING
Managing significant personal wealth requires planning and strategy. We work with many high-net-worth individuals and family offices, assisting them with trust and estate planning, asset management and investment monitoring, succession planning, real estate consulting, and philanthropic planning and execution.
TAX CREDITS AND INCENTIVES
When you are pursuing a venture, we are experts on the tax incentives and credits that states and localities offer to attract production and distribution companies — and the requirements to meet them. We help you leverage production and other tax credits to help you offset the high costs associated with location filming and other production activities.
