Lowenhaupt & Chasnoff, LLC has been providing counsel to families of substantial wealth since it was founded by Abraham Lowenhaupt in 1908.

The firm has been led by three generations of Lowenhaupts and was the first firm to concentrate in U.S. income taxes when it was founded. Over the years, our firm has evolved to meet the needs of the times, but we remain true to our founding mission: We help our clients build, preserve and control wealth by providing sophisticated, independent counsel and advice.

Our goal is to help clients achieve Freedom From Wealth – to fully self-actualize to realize their aspirations and goals.

Charles Lowenhaupt, Chairman and Partner of Lowenhaupt & Chasnoff, LLC, has written two books for wealth creators and wealth inheritors about the journey to Freedom From Wealth and its benefits.

Those books are Freedom From Wealth with co-author Don Trone in 2011. Freedom From Wealth has been recognized as one of the top books on family wealth management. Charles published The Wise Inheritor’s Guide To Freedom From Wealth in 2018 to help wealth inheritors manage the challenges of wealth and family relations.
