Private Client


Smith Anderson’s Private Client Services team is comprised of tax and trusts and estates lawyers who offer clients discrete, highly experienced counsel on matters of tax and wealth planning. In addition to advising on the tax planning aspects of trusts and estates, attorneys in this practice frequently represent clients in adversarial proceedings before the IRS and have a long record of resolving tax disputes involving state and local taxes.

Our experience extends to helping individuals and their families with private philanthropy.  We represent a variety of tax-exempt, charitable organizations and help clients to establish new charitable organizations such as private foundations and to structure charitable donations to existing charitable organizations.

Within our Private Client Services team, our Trusts and Estates practice and several of our partners are recognized in the North Carolina Private Wealth Law chapter of the 2019 edition of Chambers and Partners: High Net Worth. The High Net Worth guide identifies the leading lawyers and law firms for wealthy individuals and families. Also of note, the head of the practice is a Fellow in the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC). Fellowship in the College is by peer nomination and election only and is based on the practitioner’s outstanding reputation, exceptional skill and substantial contributions to the field.
