The Bloomberg BNA Estates, Gifts and Trusts Advisory Board is comprised of esteemed professionals from renown corporations, universities, and government entities. Below is a listing of our current board members.

Leonard Silverstein

Leonard L. Silverstein is the founder of Silverstein and Mullens, which later became part of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC. He concentrates his practice in estate planning, nonprofit organizations, charitable contributions and representation before the Internal Revenue Service and Treasury Department.

Leonard serves as founder of the highly regarded Tax Management publication series. For the past 50 years, Tax Management has produced and maintained more than 500 portfolios, monthly journals and periodicals, providing tax professionals and advisors with a sophisticated analysis, application and interpretation of the Internal Revenue Code.

Before he founded his own firm with Richard A. Mullens in 1960, Leonard served as an attorney in the Office of Chief Counsel for the Internal Revenue Service and on the legal advisory staff of the Treasury Department. His long history of professional and community service includes roles on the Advisory Group of the House Ways and Means Committee in the late 1950s, as executive director of the "Filer" Commission on Private Philanthropy and Public Needs, as a member of President-elect Nixon's Task Force on Taxes, President Reagan's Committee on the Arts and Humanities and as a member of the IRS Commissioner's (Lawrence Gibbs) Exempt Organizations Advisory Group.
