Fundamentals of the Modern Estate Planning Practice
While minimizing tax remains the focus for some, most estate planning attorneys work to address other critical goals. This series provides an introduction to the wide range of issues that constitute a modern estate planning practice including transitioning a business across generations, protected inherited assets from creditors, planning to avoid interfamily disputes, litigating those disputes, addressing incapacity for an aging society, and the often neglected aspects of proper trust administration.
