Claimed Lawyer Profile

As a member of the firm’s Tax, Retirement Plans, Employee Benefits, Estate Planning, Estate & Trust Administration, and Corporate practice groups, Arnold Sherman focuses his practice on the areas of tax and business planning, and estate planning and probate administration matters. He has extensive experience in negotiating, structuring and documenting business contracts, tax-deferred exchanges and wealth preservation structures.
Arnie’s knowledge and familiarity with how businesses work make him especially adept at understanding and responding to the needs of his business clients. He is diligent in keeping himself apprised of current tax laws and continually works to provide his clients with the most tax-efficient business structure. At the same time, Arnie’s sincerity and sensitivity to family issues has helped him successfully advise clients on succession planning during difficult and emotionally draining times.
As a result of his practice in interrelated disciplines, Arnie can clearly and in plain English explain intricate, and sometimes apparently disparate, concepts to his clients. This permits him to design a comprehensive plan that is understood by the client and which is responsive to the client’s business, and, if applicable, personal concerns. His areas of practice and approach to working with his clients have allowed him to effectively advise individuals and closely held business entities on business and succession planning issues, as well as to provide counsel to larger business entities in conjunction with their more complex business structures and transactions.
