ROSELAND, NJ (September 20, 2012) - Connell Foley Partner Anthony F. Vitiello was a featured presenter at the UJA-Federation of New York's 43rd Annual New York Estate, Tax & Financial Planning Conference held on September 13, 2012 at the Hilton New York, N.Y.

Vitiello's session, "The Perfect Hedge: Cutting-Edge Planning Strategies with Guaranteed Results," covered in depth two creative and often overlooked estate planning strategies, using a combination of Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts or Charitable Lead Annuity Trusts. When coupled with insurance, these options provide an almost no-risk planning vehicle for high net-worth and ultra-high net worth clients. According to Vitiello, "Significant estate planning benefits are virtually guaranteed, regardless of premature death or long life."

With a legal background that encompasses almost two decades of practice in sophisticated estate planning for high and ultra-high net worth individuals, Vitiello is regularly consulted on complex tax controversies against the IRS, hard-fought estate litigation matters, and post-death estate administrations. He has authored a specialty chapter on Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts (GRATs) for the American Bar Association's national publication: Practical Guide to Estate Planning, and he has been recognized by top industry magazines such as Worth Magazine's "Top 100 Attorneys" list for all years of its publication (2005-2008), and more recently named in Best Lawyers (2011-2012) and Super Lawyers.
