Corporate Transactions. Mr. Fisher provides legal counsel for clients in all corporate areas from inception to exit as well as advising lenders and investors on transactions. Business succession planning, focusing on multigenerational strategies for high net-worth individuals is a major focus of Mr. Fisher’s practice.
Estate Planning. A well-designed estate plan should provide for loved ones by not only avoiding probate at death and reducing or eliminating death taxes, but by avoiding guardianship during your lifetime and eliminating unnecessary delays and publicity. Mr. Fisher takes time with each client to understand their goals, family, and financial situation and to carefully explain the most advantageous options and strategies. While no one can prevent the changes that life can bring, once an estate plan is in place, clients will have peace of mind knowing that they have planned and provided for themselves and their families, in case the worst happens.
Asset Protection. The Fisher Law Office is focused on asset protection, often a priority of medical professionals who own their own practice, as well as other business owners. Businesses and wealthy individuals may be concerned that they become an attractive target for lawsuits. Mr. Fisher works with clients to create a plan that insulates family assets and reduces risk of loss from a potential liability. “There are multiple options, from newly-created husband and wife irrevocable trust choices here in Maryland to more complex domestic asset protection trusts with a family’s own private office or private trust company in other states, for higher wealth individuals. A successful asset protection component of a creative estate plan can actually eliminate the threat of most lawsuits by removing the claimant’s economic incentive to sue.”
Estate Administration. Administering an estate or trust can seem to be an overwhelming task. Although most estates run smoothly, others involve family conflict, IRS disputes, or other challenges. We make the job more manageable by assisting you in every facet of the process.
Mr. Fisher is a member of WealthCounsel, a national network of more than 1,800 estate and financial planning practitioners who collaborate on best practices and changes in the law. Mr. Fisher began practicing law in Washington, D.C., in 1988, and opened his Annapolis practice in 2004. In 2018, Mr. Fisher was again honored with an AV rating, the highest possible rating for legal ability and ethical standards for twenty-two consecutive years by Martindale-Hubble, the legal profession’s leading peer review organization. He also has been given the “Client Distinction Award,” among other awards and honors. Mr. Fisher belongs to a number of community, professional, and legal organizations, including the Anne Arundel Estate Planning Council. He recently served as Chairman of the West Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce in 2015 and 2016, and oversaw the merger which formed the Central Maryland Chamber of Commerce, the largest Chamber of Commerce in Maryland.
