Andrew M. Golden is a partner in Nutter's Private Client Department. His practice includes drafting sophisticated estate plans, with a focus on minimizing estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer taxes; advising young families in the earlier stages of their professional lives with estate plans, specifically those geared toward providing for minor children; and advising personal representatives and trustees in the areas of estate and trust administration, including the preparation of estate tax returns. Andrew also has ample experience in finding solutions for irrevocable trust instruments that include unintended ambiguities or other provisions that interfere with efficient administration, such as the preparation of Non-Judicial Settlement Agreements and General Trust Petitions.
