Gus Van Eepoel is a tax lawyer advising individuals, families, entrepreneurs, and agricultural landowners in transactions, estate planning, and business structuring. From revocable and irrevocable trusts for real estate, life insurance, limited partnerships and charity to business organization structuring, Gus works with clients to develop strategies for expansion, merger, sale, succession planning, and “buy-sell” shareholder agreements.
Gus’ clients value his accounting and teaching background, which add a depth to his counsel that facilitates teamwork among the family’s accountant, banker, financial advisor and life insurance consultant.
