Joel S. Brant

In a world of loud talkers, it is Jody Brant's ability to listen, to thoughtfully consider the input of others before speaking, that sets him apart as a lawyer and as a leader.

For his estate and wealth planning practice, Jody excels at listening to and interpreting clients’ hopes and goals, which allows him to develop strategies that might otherwise have been overlooked.

In his taxation practice, Jody takes the time to listen to every issue before rushing into action enabling him to structure transactions efficiently, minimize negative tax consequences and capitalize on potential tax benefits in the areas of corporate and partnership taxation, individual income taxation, state and local tax matters, gift and estate tax, and non-profit tax-exemption.

Jody also brings his quiet, thoughtful, well-reasoned approach to our entrepreneurship and family-owned and privately-held business groups, where he assists clients and families with formation of entities, structure, owner/shareholder relationships, business succession and other related issues.

As President and CEO of Katz Teller, Jody provides a soft-spoken, value-based leadership style that helps maximize the strengths of our attorneys and staff so that Katz Teller can continue to deliver superior results for our clients.
