Ms. Moll assists clients with their pre-death estate planning and wealth preservation through the creation of wills, revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts (including irrevocable insurance trusts, intentionally defective irrevocable grantor trusts, qualified personal residence trusts, grantor retained annuity trusts, private annuity sales to grantor trusts and installment sale transactions to grantor trusts), the use of lifetime gifting, and closely-held business succession planning. Ms. Moll has helped clients further their charitable inclinations by creating charitable trusts and charitable foundations. Ms. Moll also assists clients with post-death trust and probate administration. 

Ms. Moll also advises on the international aspects of U.S. tax matters and asset structuring and succession planning, as part of a multi-office team that advises trustees and international families and family offices on planning for U.S. beneficiaries or U.S. investments, expatriation from the United States and pre-immigration tax planning for foreign individuals who plan to become a U.S. tax resident, and related FATCA and CRS compliance matters.
