Goetz Fitzpatrick expands Trusts & Estates practice to HWIs, family offices, and family businesses


Goetz Fitzpatrick has announced an ‘of counsel’ affiliation with Alison Arden Besunder in the firm’s Trusts and Estates Department. 

Arden Besunder brings over 20 years of litigation experience and a decade focused on estate planning to the firm’s individual clients, business clients, and family foundations, as well as expertise in estate litigation and guardianship. This new relationship expands the firm’s practice and enhances its ability to offer well-rounded, comprehensive, and compassionate estate-related services to its clients.

Goetz Fitzpatrick’s Trusts and Estates Department serves clients with substantial wealth who require sophisticated estate and lifetime giving plans as well as clients who are in the process of accumulating wealth and need help minimising tax liability and protecting their hard-earned assets. The practice specialists administer estates and trusts, including handling probate and other judicial proceedings. They are supported by lawyers in other practices to address areas of interest to individuals, including pensions and real estate, personal income tax advice, and domestic relations law, as well as areas of interest to entrepreneurs, including corporate and partnership tax, business reorganisation, and commercial real estate law.

“Our clients look to us as trusted advisors,” says Josh Oberman, Partner at Goetz Fitzpatrick. “Our primary goal is to make their business and personal lives easier by providing multi-faceted services in the firm. Alison is a highly regarded practitioner in the trusts and estate planning and litigation fields. Our Of Counsel relationship enhances the services we provide to multiple generations of clients. We are pleased to begin a long relationship with her.”

“My relationship with Goetz Fitzpatrick broadens the range of estate planning advice I can offer my clients to include in-depth knowledge of real estate and corporate assets,” says Arden Besunder. “The more diverse a person’s assets, the more complex the planning process, and having support from the Goetz Fitzpatrick team adds significant value to my clients while my expertise in estate litigation and guardianship expands their offerings.” 

Arden Besunder will continue to service clients from both her Arden Besunder PC office in Midtown East and Goetz Fitzpatrick’s One Penn Plaza location.
