At Kaempfer Crowell, one size does not fit all. The Firm’s attorneys understand that the needs of each client are unique and work to design and develop a comprehensive, tailored strategy to accomplish the specific goals of each individual or business. Kaempfer Crowell offers decades of experience in fostering the passage of businesses to family members or others; encouraging children’s college education; implementing charitable and philanthropic giving; providing for disabled or special needs children; and planning for disability and care for pets, among others. The Firm's primary objective is to minimize estate, gift and generation skipping tax liability, while respecting a clients’ dispositive wishes.

Kaempfer Crowell helps devise the best tax solutions including how to select and implement the most tax advantageous entity to transact business and how to minimize operational tax consequences and tax liabilities for real estate transactions and like-kind exchanges. In addition, the Firm’s attorneys are highly proficient in legal and asset protection issues as they relate to corporate reorganizations, including mergers and acquisitions; employment taxes and tax-exempt organizations.

When appropriate, the Firm works cooperatively with our clients’ accountants, financial planners, insurance and real estate agents and other professionals to maximize our client’s ability to effectively solve, manage and avoid tax problems.

If any tax problems do arise, the Firm’s attorneys routinely represent clients before Federal and state taxing authorities during audit, after assessment, in appeals, during collection, or if necessary, in court. The Firm has experience in federal income and employment taxes, “responsible person” penalties, offers in compromise, installment agreements, innocent-spouse defense and numerous other issues, as well as applications for private letter rulings and technical advice.
