Welcome to Roots and Wings Legal: Empowering Families Through Comprehensive Estate Planning

A Journey of Passion and Dedication to Preserving Family Legacies

Yuki Ku, Esq.

Founder and Principal Attorney

Hi! I am Yuki Ku, the founder of Roots and Wings Legal, where we are committed to empowering families and business owners with tailored estate and succession planning.

My career in law began in corporate Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) and Emerging Companies and Venture Capital (ECVC, aka Startups/ VC) at renowned international firms including Covington and Burling LLP and K&L Gates LLP, and continued as I led the legal department of a Series E tech company in Silicon Valley, celebrated by Time’s 100 Most Influential Companies.

While my professional path could have taken me to the public offering of a private company—a common goal for corporate attorneys—God had a different plan for me. My father’s sudden passing in 2022 without an estate plan changed everything. As a business owner, his lack of planning left our family grappling with significant losses and unresolved conflicts, a profound challenge that deeply affected us all.

Moved by this experience and guided by my faith, I founded Roots and Wings Legal to ensure that no other family would have to endure what we went through. Our firm blends my corporate law expertise with a mission-driven approach to provide robust legal solutions. At Roots and Wings Legal, we offer not just legal services but a commitment to uphold the legacies of our clients through thoughtful estate and succession planning.

I established this firm in honor of my father and to glorify God, ensuring that the hardships we faced aren’t in vain. Driven by my personal journey, I am dedicated to giving families the “roots” to stay firmly grounded in their values and the “wings” for future generations to soar into new possibilities with confidence. We are deeply committed to serving our community, particularly supporting orphans, widows, and widowers to thrive under unimagined circumstances. At Roots and Wings Legal, we protect assets and nurture legacies with purpose and compassion, empowering each generation to build upon the last
