(Fort Lauderdale, Fla.)-Cooper Levenson, Attorneys at Law, has opened its fifth office. The newest location is in the Broward Financial Center, 500 E. Broward Blvd, Suite 1710, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
“Increasingly, we have assisted clients with business, estate, tax and personal matters relating to relocating to Florida,” said Robert E. Salad, Esq., LL.M., firm president and chairman of the Business, Tax and Cyber Risk Management Practice Groups. “That trend, bolstered by research that indicates Florida is home to five of the top ten cities people plan to move to in 2017, led us to conclude that we need to have a physical presence in the Sunshine State.”
Cooper Levenson has large practice areas in business and tax law, estate planning and cyber risk management. These practice groups have extensive experience guiding entrepreneurial clients through every type of matter encountered in business: formation; mergers and acquisitions; sales and purchases; partnership and operating agreements; real estate transfers; tax counseling; and, with increasing frequency, cyber risk management.
The attorneys of Cooper Levenson work with estates of all sizes throughout Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, Nevada, and the District of Columbia, guiding clients through the process of estate planning and administration, preparing for the orderly transfer of wealth from one generation to the next and for inheritance, estate and gift tax matters. Clients depend on Cooper Levenson lawyers for crafting wills and trusts, including special needs and living trusts, sophisticated estate planning documents, powers of attorney, living wills/advance health care directives and more, with a strong emphasis on asset protection planning.
Estate planning for those with family-owned and closely-held business entities has become a special niche practice area that constitutes a significant portion of the firm’s work. Key to this practice is having attorneys who understand the complex business, family and interpersonal dynamics that are often a significant part of closely-held business succession planning.
Cooper Levenson celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2017. “We are looking forward to the firm’s next 60 years in Florida as well as in our New Jersey, Delaware and Las Vegas offices,” added Salad.
Cooper Levenson has been a full service law firm since 1957, with 75 attorneys and offices in Atlantic City and Cherry Hill, N.J., Bear, Del., Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Las Vegas, Nev. Visit www.cooperlevenson.com or call (800) 529-3161.
