Trust, Estate, and Guardianship Litigation

BBDG understands the importance of pre and post mortem planning to achieve both the financial and personal goals of its clients. Our Tampa estate planning, wills & trusts lawyers represent individuals, families, and business owners in the areas of asset protection, wealth transfer, business succession planning, tax minimization, and post-death planning.

Estate Planning in Tampa: Protecting Your Legacy

Estate planning is a crucial process that ensures your assets are distributed according to your wishes after your passing, while also minimizing tax liabilities and avoiding potential disputes among beneficiaries. In Tampa, Florida, estate planning involves a thorough understanding of state laws, including those governing wills, trusts, probate, and taxation.

At Bleakley Bavol Denman & Grace, our Tampa estate planning lawyers have extensive experience assisting individuals and families in creating personalized estate plans that reflect their unique circumstances and goals. We work closely with our clients to develop comprehensive strategies that encompass:

Wills: A will is a foundational document in any estate plan, outlining how your assets should be distributed upon your death. Our attorneys can help you draft a legally sound will that accurately reflects your intentions and ensures your loved ones are provided for.

Trusts: Trusts offer additional flexibility and control over the distribution of your assets, allowing you to specify conditions and timelines for inheritance. Whether you’re considering a revocable living trust, irrevocable trust, or special needs trust, our team can guide you through the process of establishing and administering trusts to achieve your objectives.

Probate Avoidance: Probate is the legal process through which a deceased person’s assets are distributed and debts are settled. However, probate can be time-consuming, expensive, and public. Our attorneys employ various strategies to help clients minimize the impact of probate, such as the use of trusts and beneficiary designations.

Tax Planning: Estate taxes can significantly diminish the value of your estate if not properly addressed. We offer comprehensive tax planning services aimed at minimizing estate tax liabilities and maximizing the preservation of assets for future generations.

Commercial Litigation

A large part of BBDG’s overall practice has consistently been providing representation to parties in commercial disputes. The Tampa commercial litigation lawyers at BBDG represent clients in a variety of areas of commercial litigation from complex commercial cases, to cases involving breaches of fiduciary duty, to simple breach of contract cases between individuals and businesses.

Corporate Transactions

BBDG provides legal representation to sole proprietors, start-up and emerging companies, and private as well as public corporations, limited liability companies, and other business organizations with respect to a wide array of general business matters. The firm also has served as general counsel to some of its corporate clients.
