Lawrence J. Gregory



Lawrence J. Gregory recently joined Estate & Business Law Group, P.C.  He practices primarily in the areas of estate planning and administration, wealth preservation and wealth transfer, business ownership and transactions, and succession planning.  Whether it is generational wealth, a nest-egg, a business transaction, or simply “putting your affairs in order,” Larry handles all matters with the same level of attention, expertise and skill.  His clients also appreciate the fact that he can speak to them in plain English and can cut through the complexity and legalese. 
 
As an attorney and Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Larry has the ability to “see the whole picture,” not only from a legal standpoint, but also from a financial and tax perspective, as well.  With a comprehensive vision, Larry is able to provide his clients with concrete action steps toward achieving their specific goals.

Prior to practicing law, Larry worked for KPMG, LLP, a Big Four public accounting firm, as lead state tax controversy associate. That role gave Larry the expertise necessary to confidently represent his clients in all aspects of tax law.  Larry has stayed active in tax law through leadership as the Chair of the Tax Law Committee of the DuPage County Bar Association.  He has also published several articles on tax-related issues and presents seminars for other attorneys and CPAs on estate and trust tax issues.

Larry grew up in Libertyville, a northern suburb of Chicago.  Larry and his wife, Jen, spent the past 10 years living in Chicago, but recently relocated to Naperville after the birth of their son, Braden.  In his spare time, Larry likes to play the classical guitar, run with the family dog (Madison), and loves anything related to Chicago history and architecture.
