For the ninth year, the National Housing Endowment will sponsor the popular seminar, "Estate Planning for the Closely Held Business," at the 2011 NAHB International Builders’ Show in Orlando from 3:30-5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 13.
Now in its ninth, Jeffrey J. Radowich, a partner with the Venable law firm and an expert on planned giving, will discuss planning techniques for business owners with real estate interests — including topics such as creating liquidity and ensuring the financial future of the owner's family.
An expert on taxation and trusts and estates, Radowich has made more than 215 presentations on estate planning, estate administration and business continuity planning topics, including presentations sponsored by the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, National Association of Estate Planning Councils; the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants; Associated General Contractors of America; Sun America Securities; the Georgetown University Advanced Estate Planning Institute; the Midwest Estate Tax & Business Planning Institute; the Maryland State Bar Association; the Pennsylvania Bar Institute; the Maryland Association of Realtors®; and others.
For the past 17 years, Radowich has been listed in "The Best Lawyers in America for Trusts and Estates." He also was recently named the Trusts and Estates Lawyer of the Year for 2010 by Best Lawyers in Baltimore.
“This is a rare opportunity for our members to hear and interact with an expert in estate planning and financial management,” said Gary Garczynski, endowment chairman and 2002 NAHB president. “As business owners consider how to ensure the continuity of their legacy and the tax implications of leaving their business to heirs or employees, this seminar will provide invaluable information and contacts.”
Radowich has expertise in the preparation of wills and trusts; all estate, gift, generation-skipping transfer and charitable giving tax planning issues; IRS audits; life and disability insurance planning; and related corporate, partnership, individual and fiduciary income tax matters.
In recent years, he has concentrated on business continuity planning for closely held businesses ― assisting families' senior generation to perpetuate their businesses for succeeding generations or key employees, or helping to sell the business with a minimum of taxes.
