2016 Hot Topics in Wills and Estates
November 8, 2016

Our experienced panel provides a review of hot topics facing wills and estates practitioners. Topics include:

  • Estate planning for common-law couples and blended families: how family property laws can impact the distribution of an estate and what strategies will help ensure the estate is distributed in the intended manner
  • Pitfalls of using beneficiary designations and joint property as will substitutes: educating your clients about unintended distributions and tax consequences
  • Family farm transfers: farm property is subject to unusual tax rules, which can reduce or defer tax liability, but restrict how the farmer can deal with the farm - learn to identify and address the issues
  • Review of the legislation and case law in the context of everyday practice
