Biography

Benjamin R. Hanan currently serves as Managing Partner of the Sarasota office and works in the trust and estate and corporate practice groups. Ben's principal areas of practice include business and estate planning.

As part of his business practice, Ben regularly counsels businesses and business owners on entity formation and funding, organizational and capital structure, joint ventures, mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, and equity owner agreements. Whether assisting a start-up venture or counseling a well-established corporation with hundreds of employees, multiple locations and revenues in excess of $100 million, Ben's training as a CPA, business acumen and proactive approach to the practice of law, enables him to offer keen insight into the legal and business issues and opportunities facing his clients.

With regard to his estate planning practice, Ben has extensive experience working with individuals and families to achieve their individual planning goals. Ben individually designs each client's estate plan to address each individual's goals with respect to tax mitigation and the preservation of wealth, asset protection, transfer of wealth to heirs and beneficiaries, philanthropy, protection and care for dependents, incapacitated children and elderly family members, Medicaid qualification and the protection of assets from nursing home costs.

Lastly, a combination of Ben's business and estate planning practices make him uniquely qualified to counsel business owners and their families with respect to succession planning and family business matters.
