Overview

Ronni G. Davidowitz is head of Katten’s New York Trusts and Estates practice. Ronni concentrates her practice in trusts and estates law with a focus in private client services. She has extensive experience in complex estate and trust administration, including estate and gift tax audits and petitions and protests for redetermination of assessed deficiencies, basic to highly sophisticated pre- and post-mortem estate planning, contested and uncontested surrogate court matters, including probate disputes, judicial and informal fiduciary accountings. She is committed to developing strategies that respond to the constant changes in the tax structure and economic climate, including counseling on asset protection, business succession planning and intergenerational transfers. She also provides advice in the nonprofit sector to public charities and private foundations in tax planning.

Her clients include high-net-worth individuals and families, closely-held businesses, entrepreneurs, artists and art collectors. Ronni focuses her tax and estate planning on finding creative and efficient ways to avoid litigation. However when litigation is necessary, Ronni has a successful track record in estate and trust litigation and probate litigation.

On June 7, 2016, Ronni was honored by the UJA-Federation of New York Lawyers Division for her contributions to the Trusts & Estates community and the community at large.  Ronni also has been honored by the Great Neck Center for the Visual and Performing Arts for pro bono legal services provided to the Center, and by the South Brooklyn Legal Services for pro bono legal services provided to individuals infected with HIV and their families.

Shown below is a selection of Ronni’s engagements.
