Cheryl L. Gordon focuses her practice on business and transactional tax law, and advises a wide variety of corporate and high net worth individuals on tax and legal aspects of their business activities and estate plans.
Cheryl, who is also a certified public accountant, has represented and advised numerous individuals and companies in the formation, acquisition and/or sale of business ventures, the planning and implementation of qualified plans and all aspects of the day-to-day operations of their business.
Cheryl also works with high net worth individuals and business owners to organize their income tax, business succession and estate planning affairs in order to maximize wealth preservation and minimize tax on transfers to family members, charities and other recipients. This is accomplished through the use of the latest sophisticated estate planning strategies, including sophisticated wills and trusts, grantor retained annuity trusts, family limited partnerships, family charitable foundations, and other similar techniques.
