Best & Flanagan is pleased to welcome Alex Galle-From and Elaine Mikel as associate attorneys in our Private Wealth Planning and Corporate Law practice groups. “We know Alex and Elaine will bring their top-notch legal skills, curiosity and engagement to their practice at Best & Flanagan, continuing the firm’s commitment to providing the highest level of client service. We are excited to add these two talented lawyers to our team,” said Sarah Crippen, the firm’s Managing Partner.
Alex Galle-From is a member of the firm’s Private Wealth Planning group with a practice focused primarily in the areas of estate planning, trust and estate administration, and tax law. His wide-ranging experience includes business succession planning, charitable organization, trust administration, fiduciary litigation and wealth transfers for ultra-high net-worth individuals. Alex graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School, and has an LL.M in International Tax Law from Uppsala University in Sweden.
Elaine Mikel practices primarily in corporate law and estate planning, with an emphasis on their intersections with real estate. She has a background in all three – starting her practice with estate planning, then representing a number of banks before diving into corporate law, all while dealing with various real estate issues along the way. Having been a clerk in both criminal and civil court, Elain brings a unique perspective to issues that arise in her practice areas. She works to understand and achieve goals with her clients, to ensure that the decisions they make now transfer to the legacy they want to leave. Elaine is a graduate of University of St. Thomas School of Law, University of Oxford, and Gustavus Adolphus College.
