GRAND RAPIDS - Estate Planning attorney John T. Klees has joined Clark Hill as Senior Counsel in the firm's Grand Rapids office.

Klees brings over 30 years of experience helping individuals and families organize their affairs to secure their business and/or nest-egg assets for future generations. Serving a diverse client base throughout the state of Michigan, Klees develops and implements asset protection plans, business succession plans, wills, and advanced estate and gift tax strategies in such a way as to minimize difficulties, taxes, and expenses.

Klees has devoted his entire career to staying on the cutting edge of the law related to estate planning and administration.
