Leonard Bosschart’s practice focuses in the areas of trusts and estates as well as charities and not-for-profit law.
As counsel to entrepreneurs, private companies, high net worth individuals and family offices, Leonard provides advice on tax planning, cross-border estate and tax planning, succession planning, and on wills and trusts. He also advises on post mortem planning, working with trustees on administration of estates as well as acting for beneficiaries on passings of accounts and other estate and trust matters.
