History

Bischof & Bischof LLP, established in 2005, aims to advise individuals and families on estate planning and estate administration.

Unique from other firms, Bischof & Bischof LLP is a boutique practice where we deliver a careful level of service and attention to each client’s needs. We help people determine their financial plans, and then we draft clear, binding documents to protect their wishes.

When young children are involved, our clients are assured that the right people will become guardians or trustees and that those fiduciaries will have appropriate guidance. Clients who have children with special needs, children of a prior marriage, or same-sex partners also benefit from specifically tailored provisions.

George L. Bischof

George brings together a career in the law, experience as a husband and parent, a little gray hair, and a bit (sometimes more than a bit) of humor. He's deeply committed to making estate planning a little simpler for families of all shapes and sizes.

While at Yale, his activities outside the classroom included Barrister’s Union, Moot Court, and the Journal of Law and Feminism; he also took Gross Anatomy at the medical school and did get-out-the-vote work for various political campaigns. He received his J.D. in 1993.

After graduation, George obtained his LL.M. in Taxation at NYU School of Law while working in the tax department at Gordon, Altman, Butowsky, Weitzen, Shalov & Wein, where he remained on a full-time basis following graduation. After working at LeBoeuf Lamb Greene & MacRae on tax issues specific to the insurance industry, he returned to general federal practice at Willkie Farr & Gallagher, where he advised a mix of individual, partnership, tax-exempt, and corporate clients on federal and state tax issues.

In 2000, George moved to the New York office of Australia’s Macquarie Bank Limited, where he developed and marketed cross-border structured finance products. He and a colleague then led the expansion of the bank’s cross-border leasing practice into the U.S. lessee market; they were then recruited in 2003 to Global Capital Finance, a lease advisory boutique, to expand their practice into the U.S. George returned to the practice of law in 2005 with the creation of Bischof & Bischof LLP.
