Richard Johnson
Attorney, Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis

For over 30 years, large family-owned and closely held businesses, family offices, and high net worth individuals, including their private family trust companies, and tax-exempt organizations have sought out Richard Johnson to provide practical tax, business, and estate and trust planning solutions.

Clients appreciate his understanding of family dynamics - and the unique challenges families encounter - and have confidence in his ability to protect their wealth by applying common sense solutions.

Clients benefit from Richard's vast experience with S-corporations, LLCs, private trust companies, and partnership law which, when combined with strategic tax planning, helps minimize corporate and personal tax liabilities on both the state and federal levels.

Richard organizes and advises private family trust companies in Nashville, Tennessee. He formed the first private family trust company under Tennessee law and has been responsible for forming more than half of Tennessee's private family trust companies. He helped draft new legislation updating Tennessee's private trust company law, which greatly expanded the definition of a private family trust company to make Tennessee's private trust company statutes more attractive than those in other states.  The updated law now provides the family with the option to allow the family's business to own the private trust company as a wholly owned subsidiary.

Richard works with wealthy individuals, families, and their family offices to structure their assets and ownership interests to keep wealth in the family and to foster the use of that wealth to perpetuate the family's values and purposes.
