About William:

Understanding the financial goals and priorities of individuals who are planning their estates, combined with compassion for those who face the challenges of having lost a loved one, have been at the core of my practice for more than 50 years.

Bill joined Buckingham in 2024. His practice has focused on sophisticated estate planning for high net worth business owners, executives and professional athletes across all sports. The latter involvement resulted in the development of expertise in international estate planning, be it for residents who were non-citizens or for US citizens owning property abroad.
