Justyn is a Partner in the New York office, where he serves as Co-Head of the Cerity Partners Family Office. In this role, he leverages his expertise in complex estate and tax planning to advise ultra-high-net-worth clients with complicated balance sheets, such as partners of hedge funds and private equity and venture capital firms. As an attorney with an LL.M. in tax law, Justyn has a unique ability to understand various intricacies of the tax code and efficiently integrate them into clients’ lives. His knowledge expands across multiple areas of tax law including partnership taxation, where he works closely with CFOs of hedge funds and private equity funds to ensure they are structured properly and operate tax-efficiently, and estate tax, where Justyn has worked with many of these same principals to structure and implement a variety of strategies to pass fund appreciation on to family trusts tax-efficiently.
