The ABA Section of Real Property, Trust & Estate Law is sponsoring a webinar entitled, Top Ten Estate Planning Blunders, on October 15, 2013. Provided below is a description of the event:
"For of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: 'It might have been!'"
Whittier captured what we all strive to avoid -- estate plans that go awry. Join our panelists (an estate planning attorney, a tax and probate litigator, and in-house counsel at a trust company) as they take a holistic view of estate plans and ten common -- yet avoidable -- miscues. Clients expect that their wealth will be conveyed to the right recipients in the right way, so:
- Ensure your plan design includes everything it should;
- Understand whether the plan will be implemented as you anticipate; and
- Recognize critical aspects to avoid (or defend against) an attack.
