Stanley plays a pivotal role at Withers. His years in the industry and tremendous knowledge of tax, accounting and law in general are invaluable to our firm and attorneys as a resource, mentor and a very well-known business generator. Stanley keeps an active practice that encompasses all phases of tax law, estate planning and trusts (domestic and international), business law and advising on pension plans. He is a frequent lector and instructor of continuing education courses. He also stays very active with industry associations and events and continues to bring in new work.
In addition to receiving a prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from the Connecticut Law Tribune earlier this year, Stanley was an integral part of a nationwide team of Withers lawyers that researched, wrote and filed an amicus brief with the US Supreme Court for one of the biggest tax cases for trusts in decades (North Carolina Department of Revenue v. Kimberly Rice Kaestner 1992 Family Trust). The court's unanimous decision embraced the view that our brief advocated for on behalf of a national group of trust and banking associations and in the interest of our clients.
