Innovative Wealth Preservation And Fiduciary Protection Solutions In Greater Chicago

Wealth management, wealth preservation and the transfer of assets are complex concerns that frequently involve a number of professional advisers. The law firm of Lesser Lutrey Pasquesi & Howe, LLP in Lake Forest, Illinois, has served as trusted advisers and fiduciaries for individuals, families and closely held businesses, as well as counsel for professional fiduciaries since 1996.

Our attorneys provide a wide range of experienced legal guidance regarding tax planning, estate planning, trust administration and, if necessary, litigation services. We do so with a level of personal attention that other Chicago firms that have an equal level of experience find difficult to match.

Our firm represents professional and individual fiduciaries and beneficiaries in a variety of litigation involving trusts, estates and nonprofit organizations. This includes breach of fiduciary duty issues, will and trust contests, and claims disputes.

Experienced Litigators With A Proven Track Record

Our lawyers frequently work closely with our clients' accountants, financial planners, life insurance professionals, money managers or outside fiduciaries. A distinct difference between our law firm and others serving the North Shore and Greater Chicago is an extensive level of experience that we bring to the table regarding trust litigation. We advise and represent trustees, personal representatives and beneficiaries in resolving disputes concerning estates and trusts and in all aspects of estate and trust litigation.

However, because we understand that litigation costs can quickly spiral out of control, we strive to reach a fair agreement without the need to litigate whenever possible. Our focus is always on protecting our clients' best interests. By entering every dispute with an assumption that it will go to trial, we hold ourselves to a level of preparation that allows us to negotiate from a position of strength.
