“We are thrilled to welcome Karen to our firm,” said Darcy Norville, Managing Partner. “Her inclusive approach and deep experience with complex estate planning, as well as business and tax law, is a perfect complement to Tonkon Torp’s Estate Planning Group attorneys and clients.”
Hobson, who has practiced in areas of tax, estate planning, and administration since 2008, is experienced in providing Oregon and Washington clients with the full array of planning and administration services. She regularly advises clients on tax planning strategies to minimize state and federal transfer taxes through the use of charitable vehicles, grantor trusts, and limited liability companies. Hobson also has experience advising on pre-formation planning, entity formation, and corporate governance issues – expertise that ideally complements her planning practice for those clients with sophisticated business succession goals.
“I look forward to continue working with clients on their planning needs and to have the support of the powerful estate and tax planning team here at Tonkon Torp,” shared Hobson.
Hobson has previously worked at Williams Kastner & Gibbs, PLLC, and Bullivant Houser Bailey PC. She obtained her J.D. from University of Oregon and an L.L.M. from New York University. Hobson is a member of the Estate Planning Council of Portland.
