CHICAGO, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Winston & Strawn LLP announced today that Michael K. Moyers is the latest partner to join its trusts and estates practice in Chicago.  Moyers brings nearly two decades of sophisticated experience in complex tax and business planning, including estate planning, for individuals, small businesses, and families.  He joins Winston from Levin Schreder & Carey Ltd., where he was a partner.



Moyers' practice is focused on counseling closely-held businesses and owners regarding succession planning and related tax and legal issues.  He also advises high net worth families on a range of fiduciary matters.  Beyond his law practice, Moyers has spent the past two years organizing and managing the startup of a nationally chartered trust company.  

"Mike brings enormous talent, energy, and experience to our trusts and estates practice.  His arrival allows us to build on and further enhance our services," said William Doyle, Jr., chair of the firm's trusts and estates practice group. "His understanding of our clients' needs is an immediate asset that provides tremendous focus and strength to a particularly complex area," he added.

Last month, the firm announced the arrival of Kevin C. Lane, a trusts and estates partner whose practice includes serving several families with a net worth in excess of a billion dollars.  

Moyers earned his J.D., with distinction, from Stanford University Law School, where he was associate editor of the Stanford Law Review and elected to Order of the Coif.  He received an A.B., with distinction and departmental honors, from Stanford University.  

Winston & Strawn LLP is an international commercial law firm with 14 offices in America, Asia and Europe.  More information about the firm is available at
