Beth L. Fox

Beth L. Fox focuses her practice on helping individuals and families utilize their assets to achieve their goals in a tax-effective manner.  With sensitivity towards individual goals, Beth strives to help clients provide for their families, protect their loved ones and benefit valued charities through lifetime gifting and tailored revocable trusts, structured to balance creditor protection, tax minimization and beneficiary quality of life.

Her practice includes sophisticated drafting for high net worth individuals, utilizing the alphabet soup of ILITs, GRATs, CRUTs and Crummey gift trusts, structuring interfamily loans, setting up interfamily entities to minimize taxes, and where appropriate, addressing complex tax questions by crafting private letter ruling requests.  In addition to advising fiduciaries in administering trusts and estates, Beth prepares estate tax returns, and represents executors in probate court.

While in law school on a full academic scholarship, Beth interned at Harrison and Held, LLP, and served as a Notes and Comments Editor of the Chicago-Kent Law Review.  As a student, Beth earned the CALI award for highest class mark in seven classes including Estate Planning, Trusts and Estates, and Income Tax, and graduated in the top 1.6% of her class.

She joined Harrison and Held, LLP in 2016 after receiving her Juris Doctorate from Chicago-Kent College of Law.
