Eugene Gorrin

Mr. Gorrin is an experienced attorney focusing on wills, trusts and estates, business formation and planning, and income tax planning.  He started his career as an attorney in private practice counseling high net worth clients and became partner at one of New Jersey’s largest law firms.  Gene then shifted his career and joined a multi-family office of a major financial institution, developing and implementing sophisticated wealth transfer planning, business planning and income tax strategies for ultra high net worth clients.  A few years later, the head of the institution’s trust company personally asked Gene to move to the trust administration side and create a new group for accepting and administering closely held business interests in accounts maintained by the trust company.  Several months later, in conjunction with the trust company’s reorganization, the head of the trust company requested that he also take over as manager of its existing real estate group.  Gene simultaneously managed both groups and eventually merged them into one group. 

Gene has conducted many presentations on wealth transfer techniques, income tax strategies and closely held businesses for clients and professionals, and has also written numerous published articles on estate planning, income tax, business and charitable topics.
