BURLINGAME, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/06/14 -- A preeminent group of Northern California wealth planning attorneys is pleased to announce the formation of their firm, Anderson Yazdi Hwang Minton + Horn LLP, effective January 1, 2014. The firm immediately becomes one of the largest and most experienced wealth advisory-focused law firms in California, with a dozen attorneys delivering sophisticated advisory and controversy-related services to a diverse base of high net worth clients.
The team of 28 attorneys, paralegals and staff were previously with the firm Carr McClellan Ingersoll Thompson & Horn, where they comprised essentially the entire estate planning and administration practice and much of the trust and estate litigation group. The new firm includes former Carr McClellan name partner Albert J. Horn, who joins Anderson Yazdi as a founder/emeritus partner. It includes a full-service advisory practice as well as a leading controversy practice, representing both plaintiffs and defendants on trust, estate, and fiduciary litigation.
"The formation of our new firm comes at an optimal time, enabling us to even more effectively meet our clients' needs, as well as seize new opportunities in this very dynamic and growing market for wealth-related legal services," said Steven D. Anderson, managing partner. "Feedback from clients, the vast majority of whom will be joining us at the new firm, has been extremely positive. We remain deeply committed to serving as their trusted advisors, and adapting and evolving based on the changing dynamics of high net worth-related matters such as asset protection, privacy and their increasing cross-border needs."
The firm retains its deep commitment to civic and professional leadership, and its partners hold leadership positions in a wide range of California-based organizations. The partners are:
Steven D. Anderson

For more than 25 years, he has designed and implemented virtually every type of estate planning mechanism for high-net-worth families and individuals. He also counsels nonprofit organizations in all aspects of sophisticated planned giving. Among his many professional and civic leadership positions, Steve is Vice President of the San Francisco Estate Planning Council and a life member of the Board of Directors of Peninsula Family Service. Steve has been named a Northern California Super Lawyer from 2005 through 2013.
For more than 20 years, Golnar has been a trusted advisor to high net worth families and individuals. She uses sophisticated estate planning strategies to help clients achieve their personal and business wealth transfer objectives while minimizing the impact of estate, gift and generation skipping taxes. Golnar is the vice-chair of the board of trustees of the Mills Peninsula Hospital Foundation, on the advisory board of Peninsula Family Service of San Mateo County, as well as a former board president of the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County. She has been named a Super Lawyer from 2009 through 2013, and one of the Top 50 Women Northern California Super Lawyers from 2012 through 2013.

He has also successfully represented clients in estate tax and gift tax audits, trust reformation proceedings and requests for private letter rulings. Sinclair has been named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers from 2009 through 2013.
John D. Minton
John is a seasoned litigator with extensive courtroom experience, whose practice focuses exclusively on trust, estate and fiduciary litigation.

Albert J. Horn
One of Northern California's foremost trust and estate planning lawyers, Albert has more than 50 years of experience advising families on strategies to acquire wealth, preserve it and transfer it from one generation to the next.

"I am deeply proud and excited to be a part of this group of enterprising and highly talented attorneys in forming our new firm," said Horn. "Our focus and commitment remains unwavering: to help clients grow their wealth and pass it on to future generations while minimizing the impact of taxes."

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
