Death Care

From the rise in cremation and preneed arrangements to green burials and personalized life celebrations, the death care industry is highly-regulated and undergoing significant transformation. 

Post & Schell’s attorneys have extensive experience representing the owners and operators involved in the various components of the death care industry. We understand the challenges of competing in a rapidly-changing industry and guide clients through the broad array of federal, state, and local regulations they face.

Post & Schell represents death care clients before licensing boards, administrative agencies, and the legislature, and, when necessary, challenges governmental authorities in court. The Firm’s attorneys routinely litigate commercial and contract disputes, trade secret and non-compete claims, consumer protection matters, and fraud, defamation, and other business torts. They also provide counsel on transactions, contracts, and the impact of regulations. 

Post & Schell’s death care clients include:

  • Funeral homes
  • Cemeteries
  • Crematories
  • Merchandise companies
  • Preneed sellers
  • Insurance agents
  • Memorialization professionals

Post & Schell’s attorneys have lectured nationally on death care topics, and our work has been recognized by commentators and publications across the country. With our in-depth understanding of the business, the law, and the regulators, we help the death care industry compete in the present and plan for the future.
