Scott Bieber
| Thompson Coburn LLP

Scott's practice focuses in the areas of family wealth preservation, federal transfer taxation, and family business planning.

He counsels individuals with their personal estate planning and owners of closely held businesses with business succession and related issues. Additionally, he represents executors and trustees in the administration of estates and trusts, as well as taxpayers and their executors in gift and estate tax audits.

Scott enjoys serving private clients because of the personal nature of the representation and the opportunity to help in areas that extend beyond traditional estate planning, such as matters related to operation of family businesses. Given the complicated laws private clients face, Scott prides himself in not "over-lawyering" matters and aims to translate the law in simple terms so that clients understand and follow the best path to meet their objectives.

In addition to representing individuals, Scott also advises public and private charitable organizations.

Scott is a fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, is recognized by Illinois Super Lawyers in estate planning and probate and is listed by Leading Lawyers Network for Trust, Will & Estate Planning Law. He is also named in The Best Lawyers in America® in the area of trusts and estates. In addition, Scott is an editorial board member of Estate Planning Magazine.
