Biographical Info

Bruce Gaynes, a founding shareholder of KKG, has over 35 years of experience helping clients. Prior to practicing law, he worked in the tax department of a national accounting firm and became a Certified Public Accountant. His law practice focuses on corporate, estate planning and tax matters.

Bruce’s work involves all sizes and types of entities. He handles matters concerning the full business life cycle, beginning with organizational structuring and formation. As business and professional practices develop and grow, Bruce helps them properly document and protect themselves, using operating agreements and shareholder agreements, independent contractor agreements, employment contracts, non-disclosure agreements, and other commercial transaction agreements. As clients look for exit strategies Bruce negotiates merger and acquisition documents, advises families on gifting techniques, formulates reorganization strategies, and spearheads family and tax planning.

As part of his work for business owners, executives, and professionals, Bruce maintains an estate planning practice, counseling individuals and families in their tax-reduction and asset-transfer strategies. As a consequence of his involvement in trust and estate law, Bruce also has extensive experience helping clients with probate matters.

Bruce is married with three children. When he is not in the office, he can often be found volunteering with various community and philanthropic institutions. He has served on the board of directors for several associations, has served as president of the Atlanta Jaycees, and presided over and chaired many other organizations. Bruce is often called upon to speak to groups about matters ranging from taxation to estate planning to fund-raising.
