Professional Biography


David Bayard helps clients with the entire estate planning process, from the formation of client's wills and testaments to the administration of succession plans, all the while navigating the applicable state and federal tax considerations. He helps clients determine the best estate planning tools to achieve their goals of passing their assets to their legatees while simultaneously protecting those assets. He also assists in estate and trust litigation often occurring during the estate administration phase.

Mr. Bayard also represents clients in buying and selling family and privately owned businesses and navigating the surrounding tax considerations inherent in business transactions.

As a former NCAA and high school football coach, Mr. Bayard has a natural interest in sports, including the NCAA's Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) Rules.

Subsequently, Mr. Bayard's practice includes representation of businesses interested in retaining NCAA athletes for sponsorship opportunities, as well as NCAA athletes interested in protecting their personal brands in NIL deals.
