As a fly fisherman, Woods knows that the right knot selected and tied properly can define a successful outing. The same concept holds true in tying up clients' business and estate plans.
Utilizing sophisticated estate planning techniques, Woods preserves clients' assets for future generations, reduces or postpones tax liability, plans for the succession of a business or family property and accomplishes philanthropic goals. He works closely with high-net-worth clients to develop and implement comprehensive strategies to further their unique objectives, creating estate plans designed to minimize taxes and administrative costs often involving charitable trusts, family held offices and private foundations.
Woods also advises on planning for tax-exempt entities, real estate development, land use, business transactions and corporate finance matters.
