Engel Law pc is a Colorado professional corporation. The firm was founded in 1984, and its practice of law is limited to estate planning with a view to the lifetime protection of the estate (“integrated estate planning”), offshore planning, conventional domestic and international estate planning, transactional matters, business and tax planning.
The firm is known worldwide for its efforts concerning the asset protection component of integrated estate planning. The firm has influenced trust legislation in a number of countries around the world, and the firm's professional endeavors have revolutionized the thinking of lawyers and other wealth planners globally. This includes the adoption by various jurisdictions of statutory law designed to lend certainty to the planning concepts involved in integrated estate planning.
The firm's founding principal, Barry Engel, was one of three co-authors of trust legislation as enacted in 1989 by the Parliament of the Cook Islands. This legislation has served as a model for many other jurisdictions, both offshore and onshore. Mr. Engel has also consulted with a number of other foreign jurisdictions regarding similar legislation.
Engel Law pc has four distinct departments: (1) Integrated Estate Planning; (2) Trust Funding and Administration; (3) Tax and Business Planning; and (4) Tax and Compliance.
