Wills and Legacy Planning

We draft Last Will and Testament documents, living wills, and documents that control gifts of your property if you pass away. Our attorneys also handle charitable giving, conditional giving, distributing or delaying inheritances, and other legacy planning operations.

We also administer the distribution of tangible assets, real estate, intellectual property, digital or intangible assets, and other valuable property. Our goal is to put you in comfortable control of the gifts and transfers made if you pass away.



Our firm can help you plan and administer the smooth transfer of assets to family or charities. We create a variety of trusts, each one tailored to fit your family’s needs. They include:

  • Revocable Trusts
  • Irrevocable Trusts
  • Real Estate Trusts
  • Firearms Trusts
  • Conservation Easement Trusts
  • DSTs

We can establish a legal foundation or trusts that operate after your death. Our team can arrange long-term charitable giving, accommodate the needs of minor children, or supervise the inheritance to specific heirs. We ensure that you control how your wealth passes to the next generation, even after you pass away.


Powers of Attorney

You might need to empower an agent to act for you in medical care, running your business, or caring for your family when you are unable. We draft power of attorney documents to authorize someone else to represent you or act on your behalf.


End-of-Life Planning

Putting an end-of-life plan in place for you or a loved one creates peace of mind, avoids conflict, and prevents confusion when carrying out your wishes. Our end-of-life planning services assure your desires are known and met. We assist clients with:

  • Living Wills
  • HIPAA authorizations
  • Directions for last remains
  • Directions for memorial services
  • Tissue and organ donations
  • Legacy planning to be sure your family understands your decisions

Family Estate Planning Packages

Your decisions about your assets today can significantly affect your family’s future. Protect your family’s legacy with our comprehensive family estate planning packages. By addressing the whole family’s needs in one set of documents, you ensure the different parts of your plan work together.


High Net Worth Estate Planning

Estate planning can be extra challenging for individuals with a lot to protect. Our firm understands the complexities and challenges of planning your estate when you have a high net worth or a large family business.


Probate Proceedings

Administering a deceased loved one’s estate can be overwhelming, especially when still grieving. The stress and loss can lead to disagreements within a family. Our attorneys know how to navigate stressful and emotional conversations to give you the advice you need. Let us advise you during the probate process to take the load off your shoulders.

We can also serve as personal representatives, guardians of incapacitated people, and conservators of estates.


Tax Planning

We guide our clients through tax optimization of their individual or business accounts. We can offer taxation counsel for corporate restructuring, real estate acquisitions, and tax-deferred exchanges.

Our tax planning services help you find ways to maximize your savings now and protect your assets into the future.


Business Succession Planning

Our business succession planning services allow you to plan and successfully execute a business transfer to a family member or trusted colleague. Succession planning is more nuanced than selling your business. It is an intentional, planned transfer that can occur in an emergency, when your family members are ready to step up, or when you want to retire in stages.

Our business estate planning services include emergency powers, inheritance or transfer of the business, powers of attorney services, and succession documentation. Every succession plan is unique, so call us for a consultation.

Business Law

Anzen Legal Group provides comprehensive business law services for those starting or reorganizing a business in Colorado or Wyoming.

With our legal team’s background in the corporate world, we have a concrete understanding of the challenges you overcome to run your business.

Business Formation

Let’s talk about your marketplace, business plans, and goals for growth. Our attorneys can recommend the best form of business ownership for you.

We’ll help you structure your business and put the necessary procedures in place. A strong start is essential to your success, so we help you establish the documents, forms, and internal policies that set you on the right path. We’ll also draft essential documentation to ensure that your business is registered, bankable, and insurable.


Business Liability Shielding

Protect your family assets by keeping your business legally separate from your home and savings. Don’t let your business structure leave you open to lawsuits and debt. We help you find the proper business structure to protect you from costly settlements and lawsuits.

We can insulate your business and personal assets from claims made by employees, suppliers, lenders, and government agencies. Best of all, we help your business stay compliant and avoid litigation in the first place.


Trademarks and Copyright

You worked hard to create your brand and wow your customers. Protect that reputation through trademark and copyright protection. Trademarks and copyrights are crucial for a company’s market position, brand identity, and good reputation. Our attorneys can intervene if your brands, packaging, or works of authorship are used by a competitor or misused by the media.


Buy/Sell Agreements

A buy/sell agreement is a crucial contract for any multi-partner business. This agreement protects the integrity of your company and your assets in case one or more of the partners wishes to, or must, leave the company.

Don’t leave your business leadership to chance. Call us to discuss a buy/sell agreement or discuss business succession planning.


Transaction Consultation

You work hard for each sale in your business. Don’t let legal loopholes and technicalities set you back. We help clients form contracts and agreements with other business entities. Our attorneys handle situations big and small, such as sales agreements, equipment leases, vendor relationships, or accepting investors.

Consult our legal team before committing your business to a new contract. By drawing on our experience, you can ensure your next deal is beneficial and enforceable.


Business Dispute Mediation

Business litigation is costly and time-consuming. It can also damage business relationships and reputations, affecting your company long-term. Rather than taking your dispute to court, our experienced attorneys can help you reach a faster solution through mediation.

Don’t wait for a dispute to grow. Mediation is effective before a conflict begins, such as planning a business partner’s exit, defining expectations under a contract, or avoiding conflict with an employee. Put our training to work as the neutral facilitator in any conversation.
