Over the years, Leslie Geller has developed a strong intuition into how her clients care to provide for their families and transfer wealth to future generations. She represents high- and ultra high-net-worth individuals, helping them tackle major life decisions without the need to get into the complex legal weeds themselves. Leslie has counseled successful entrepreneurs, technology executives, studio heads, and investment professionals on creative and practical methods of structuring their fortunes for optimal tax efficiency and long-term preservation. She has also advocated for clients in front of the IRS and the California Franchise Tax Board, and often consults directly with our litigation team to advise on the specifics of trusts and probate, estate, and gift tax laws, many of which are unique to California.
