Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek distinguishes itself by combining a comprehensive Estates & Trusts practice with the panoply of specialties provided by a full-service law firm. This combination presents a distinct advantage to institutional and private-wealth clients who become involved in trusts and estates disputes by arming them with attorneys who have experience in administrative proceedings before the Internal Revenue Service and Franchise Tax Board, who have tried cases in probate court, civil court, and tax court, and are able to navigate trust and probate law and procedure.
At SCMV, our Estates & Trusts team is made up of sophisticated estate planning and wealth management attorneys, trust administration attorneys, tax attorneys, and litigation attorneys. This layered approach assures truly full-service representation for SCMV’s clients in every phase of trusts and estates controversies, including pre-litigation planning, formal litigation through trial and appeal, and structuring of complex global settlements.
SCMV’s trusts and estates clientele encompasses a broad range of institutional and private-wealth clients, including corporate fiduciaries, private and individual trustees, charitable institutions, private foundations, administrators, executors, beneficiaries, heirs, and institutional and private client creditors.
