Mr. Goede also regularly advises landlords and tenants on leases that involve office buildings, shopping malls and other commercial properties.
An expert on all aspects of estate planning, including generational planning, asset protection and charitable giving to preserve assets and transmit wealth while minimizing transfer taxes, Mr. Goede counsels private clients as well as fiduciaries and financial institutions in the administration of trusts and estates including disputes.
