Attorney Borakove’s Practice Areas and Philosophy

Shayna’s practice is focused on foundational and advanced estate planning with a special emphasis on multi-generational transfers, estate tax mitigation, and business planning, including succession, for the business owner. She believes in the value of including the family’s trusted advisors in the planning process, assuring the most complete plan possible.

Estate Planning and Asset Protection

Clients seeking a meaningful estate plan that reflects their unique situation, accomplishes their goals and minimizes their risks associated with our changing times will benefit from Shayna’s estate plan designs. Shayna works with families in designing estate plans that communicate that family’s values while mitigating the negative consequences of affluence and taxes to the extent possible.  She concentrates her knowledge in estate planning and succession planning to ensure her clients receive the highest level of legal counsel, with a communication style that is straightforward, easy, and friendly, with a healthy dose of humor. The subject of estate planning is difficult, the conversation shouldn’t be.

Business Planning & Continuation

Shayna’s civil litigation background defending businesses and individuals in Boston, help Wisconsin business owners and prospective entrepreneurs make informed decisions when determining how to structure and how to maintain their businesses. Too often, business owners set up LLCs or other business entities by filing registration documents with the state without much more. Unfortunately, simple now leads to many not-so-simple consequences later. It is Shayna’s philosophy that effective communication leads to well-counseled planning and a thorough plan is tantamount to a business’s success and in avoiding unnecessary legal battle. She strives to be a business owner’s Small Business Counsel, so the business owner can focus on what they do best.
