SPEAKER'S BIO: Natalie Roberts is the owner and sole practitioner at Flagship Law, in Tampa, Florida, which she founded in January 2017. Natalie focuses her practice in the areas of tax law, business tax and estate planning. Natalie works closely with her clients to create fully integrated estate plans, reflecting client values and wishes. Her estate plans address client goals and objectives, any currently existing arrangements, real estate, insurance, bank accounts, retirement accounts and investment accounts. Considerations of asset protection and taxation are fundamental. To implement an estate plan, she drafts legal instruments, including wills, trusts, designations of health care surrogate, powers of attorney, living wills, and pet trusts. Her planning strategies may include use of LLCs, limited partnerships, individual trusts, marital trusts (QTIPs), credit shelter trusts, family (so-called "dynasty") trusts, intentionally defective grantor trusts, charitable lead and remainder trusts, insurance trusts, and grantor retained annuity trusts. Providing legal counsel to fiduciaries, including personal representatives and trustees, is another service Natalie offers. A special interest is business succession planning, helping clients determine the easiest and most efficient way to transfer ownership and control of a family business to younger generations.

Natalie obtained her J.D. and LL.M. in Taxation at the University of Florida. She previously practiced in the area of securities regulation, having worked at the Miami Office of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

She is a member of the American Bar Association Business Law, Real Property, Trust and Estate Law and Tax Sections.
