Christen Douglas focuses her practice on trust and estate planning, administration and litigation. In planning trusts and estates, Christen counsels individuals and families with respect to estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer taxation, family business succession and philanthropic planning. Drawing on her experience as a litigator, she is able to anticipate and avoid common missteps in planning clients’ estates that might otherwise lead to costly litigation. When litigation is necessary, Christen offers a unique perspective by understanding the highly technical aspects of estate and tax planning as well as the strategy of litigation.
