For the past thirty years, Richard E. Schneyer has focused his practice in two basic areas of the law. First, he represents individuals in tax matters, estate planning, wealth preservation, probate proceedings, administration of trusts and estates, accounting proceedings and resolution of family disputes. Second, he represents closely held business organizations and their owners.

His experience includes formulating estate plans for individuals that include wills, trusts, gifts, marital agreements, and family limited partnerships. He also advises individuals and corporate fiduciaries in estate and gift tax proceedings and, in particular, defending the valuation of closely held business interests and works of art. Richard has served as an executor and trustee for his clients, and is president of a private charitable foundation.

In representing closely held businesses, his experience includes the structuring and negotiation of business succession plans, buy-sell agreements, employment contracts, retirement arrangements, asset and stock purchase agreements, financing arrangements, and real estate matters.
