Our Clients

Hemenway & Barnes serves a wide range of estate and tax-planning clients. These include young families, professionals, individuals, and family groups.

We often work with multiple generations, especially where there is shared ownership of a valuable asset, such as a family-owned business or real estate. Preserving these assets for future generations involves many complex legal, family and emotional factors, as does the decision to divest assets.

First and foremost, we seek to understand our clients' appetites for risk and complexity for themselves and their family. Our goal is to put a holistic plan in place that aligns with our clients' needs and values.
