Rob Strauss Sheds Light on Family-Limited Partnerships for Business Insider

Rob Strauss recently spoke to Business Insider about family-limited partnerships and how they are being utilized in wealth transfer and estate planning. The article, “The rich want to give their kids real estate and businesses to save on taxes but still control the family fortune.
