Why You Should Attend
Technically demanding and strategy-dependent, planning for large estates is a dynamic area of practice that only a sophisticated and well-educated attorney can master. The more assets a client has, the more complex the estate plan may need to be because diversified assets lead to varying tax consequences. Are you prepared to properly protect your wealthy client’s assets in life and in death, while minimizing estate taxes, creditor claims, and disputes among heirs?
Register today for this intensive program that had been successfully revised last year from one week to three full days. Even more popular at this length and consistently one of the highest rated estate planning programs, this CLE program on planning techniques for large estates still provides the tools you need to excel in high net-worth planning. Our faculty of seasoned practitioners will conduct discussions on a transactional basis, with an emphasis on changing factual patterns rather than on bare principles of law or statute. Instruction will cover the most practical and useful planning tips, including alternative approaches that may suit your clients’ needs best.
So enjoy the warmth of Scottsdale while you learn, network, and strategize with your peers and a highly experienced faculty of trust and estate practitioners from across the country.
