Edward Beckwith

Baker & Hostetler LLP

Edward J. Beckwith is nationally recognized for his skill and commitment as counsel to high-net-worth families and charities across the country. He serves as the national leader of BakerHostetler’s tax-exempt organizations and charitable giving practice.

Ed’s experience includes the legal and administrative specialties required to establish and successfully guide the operations of charitable and educational organizations, healthcare institutions and trade associations.

He advises families, family offices and their professionals with respect to the tax-efficient accumulation, management and distribution of their personal wealth. His advice is often sought with respect to the governance and “best practices” of such organizations and the maintenance of their tax-exempt status, as well as the tax and practical aspects of contributions and other financial support programs.

A significant aspect of Ed’s practice involves the application of tax laws to family and business financial arrangements, including the preparation of related documents to conserve and transfer wealth, the administration of such arrangements, and the representation of clients before legislative, judicial and regulatory branches of government at all levels.

For his entire professional career, Ed has lectured throughout the United States and has written extensively, including articles and speeches for the American Law Institute and the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC).

He frequently chairs continuing education programs for private wealth professionals and has been an adjunct tax professor at the Georgetown University Law Center for 34 years, where he currently teaches and coordinates a graduate-level certificate program in Advanced Estate and Charitable Planning.

Experience :

  • Frequently retained as a family legacy planner to evaluate and update existing plans, documents and related arrangements, particularly when a potential client, client’s family office or team of advisers no longer feels they have an adequate grasp of what is in place or what they are required to do to ensure that a current plan is successful.
  • Often serves as a family’s eyes, ears and voice in Washington, D.C. Clients at the highest levels, their families and their business interests often need representation to address the D.C. regulatory and legislative environment. A client’s regulatory concerns may be tax-oriented, but frequently they also involve securities regulations, multiple federal agencies, the regulation of international trade or political campaign activities, or even white collar investigations and prosecutions.
  • Provides commonsense advice in all aspects of philanthropy and the creation and management of charitable organizations. Designs structures suited to a given client’s planning needs and charitable goals that do not rely on the risky or doubtful charitable ventures often marketed to wealthy families.
