Trust administration is a critical component of elder law. With more people passing away with trusts, successor trustees need your legal services to help them understand their fiduciary duties and how to properly administer a trust. As an attorney, you need a disciplined process in place to oversee multiple administrations so important tax issues are analyzed correctly and deadlines are met.

During this one-hour webinar, you'll learn the benefits of adding trust administration to the services you provide and how to develop a process to avoid pitfalls and liability.

Topics discussed:
  • Creating a process from start to finish
  • Comparison of first death versus second death administrations
  • Understanding outright distributions versus sub-trusts allocations
  • Protecting the successor trustee with allocation agreements
  • Preventing beneficiary litigation
