Christopher N. Hewitt is a corporate & securities and private wealth lawyer, focusing his practice in the areas of generational wealth transfer planning, trust and estate administration and tax-exempt planning.

Chris provides clients with customized planning advice to assist with the generational transfer of wealth during lifetime and at death. His previous legal experience in a corporate transactional practice enables him to more effectively serve business owners and the challenges they face in transitioning assets to successive generations. Chris also assists clients in the creation of family limited liability companies to own and manage family assets. Additionally, he advises individual and corporate trustees on judicial and non-judicial modifications and decanting of irrevocable trust agreements when existing trust language has become impractical.

Chris also advises clients on the creation of tax-exempt entities and the subsequent administration of those entities. Chris advises existing tax-exempt clients on various issues, including their charitable solicitation license compliance programs.

Chris actively speaks on legal development and trends within the trusts and estates practice.

CFWNC's 32nd Annual Professional Seminar will present on a wide-array of estate and charitable planning strategies including tax updates, charitable deduction rules, and charitable planning opportunities.
