Tax, Estates and Business Practice
The attorneys in Morris James’ Tax, Estates and Business Practice have distinguished themselves among Delaware lawyers for depth of experience, broad-based knowledge, uncommon insight, and outstanding capability in the complexities of estate planning, and administration, taxation, business planning and transactions. Our proficiency in federal tax law, as well as state and local tax issues across Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland, provides the common thread throughout in the comprehensive and coordinated representation of clients in any one or more of these areas.
Individually and collectively, our practice has been singled out for legal excellence by Best Lawyers®, and as “Top Lawyers” by Delaware Today. Our attorneys have been instrumental in the drafting and passage of vital tax and business legislation, including Delaware’s Durable Personal Power of Attorney and Advance Health Care Directive statutes, amendments to elective share and college investment plan laws, and a wide range of laws to implement and improve the structure and taxation of Delaware business entities and trusts. In addition, we have been honored around the State as leaders in related bar organizations, and for community volunteerism and pro bono services.
