McCarter & English LLP in Newark added Judson “Jud” Stein as a partner to its trusts, estates and private clients practice, the firm announced on April 29.
For four-plus decades, Stein has focused his practice on estate and personal tax planning, charitable giving, estate administration, trusts, fiduciary issues and elder law.
He represents individuals and business owners before state and federal tax authorities and counsels them on business formation, operations, and succession planning.
The firm also added an associate, Lauren Nakachi, who focuses her practice on estate planning and administration, to the practice.
“Jud has built a reputation for excellence in the area of estate planning and estate administration,” added Jeffrey Muller, chair of the firm’s Tax, Employee Benefits & Private Clients Group in a prepared statement. “We welcome him and Lauren as they bolster our ability to help clients navigate important life and business decisions.”
Both Stein and Nakachi join McCarter from another Newark firm, Genova Burns LLC.
