Kozusko Harris Duncan:
Domestic and international private client and private business advice for family offices, private businesses and entrepreneurs, including tax planning, significant transactions, trusts and estates, tax disputes and philanthropy.
We focus on those areas of the law that are of recurring importance to private clients, which enables us to provide advice on issues that cross traditional legal boundaries without engaging a huge team of lawyers for every important project. The firm makes no effort to maintain proficiency in certain areas of the law, such as criminal defense or divorce representation, nor in matters that usually affect only public companies. Instead, we engage other firms on behalf of our clients when those issues arise.
