New York, NY - May 4, 2015 – Enhancing its private-client capabilities in New York City, Venable LLP has added experienced tax and wealth planning attorney Stacey Delich-Gould as a counsel in the firm's New York office.

Ms. Delich-Gould represents clients in the full spectrum of personal, tax and wealth planning. That includes work on complex estate planning issues, as well as wills, revocable trusts, insurance trusts, irrevocable grantor trusts and GRATs . She regularly advises executors and fiduciaries. She also served as lead attorney for a trustee in a multi-million dollar trust litigation.

In addition, Ms. Delich-Gould advises private foundations and public charities in tax and pension matters. She joins Venable from Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP, and prior to her tenure at Cahill, she was a member of the Estates & Personal Group at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP.

Prior to her entering private practice, Ms. Delich-Gould served as the New York University Tax Policy Fellow at the U.S. Department of Treasury. She also worked at Morgan Stanley on the fixed income trading desk.

Venable's private client tax and wealth planning practice is regarded as among the elite groups in the country. The firm has a number of highly ranked lawyers concentrating on tax, philanthropic, estate planning, succession planning, business planning and other services for high-net worth clients and family offices.

Stefan F. Tucker, one of the nation's pre-eminent tax and wealth planning attorneys, knows Ms. Delich-Gould's work well and was instrumental in bringing her to Venable. "We've been looking for a top-level private client attorney for our New York office, capable of wearing all the different hats needed to serve as 'personal general counsel' for our individual and family clients, and to assist our extensive roster of private foundations and non-profits on their tax and related issues," Mr. Tucker said. "Stacey fits that role perfectly," he added. "She's handled all the varying and nuanced aspects of private client work, including business transactions and litigation. She is a versatile and knowledgeable advisor on family and wealth management issues – she is a terrific addition to our practice nationally and for New York in particular."

"Venable is highly committed to its private clients, and many of its lawyers have consistently appeared in peer-based surveys of the top wealth planning, tax and trusts and estates advisers in the country," Ms. Delich-Gould said. "I am excited to join the group and expand its offering of service in the New York market."

Ms. Delich-Gould received her LL.M. in Taxation and her J.D. from New York University and her B.A. from Tufts University.
