"This year's conference analyzes a broad variety of topics, including developments in state and federal law, the fiduciary litigation landscape, business interests in trusts, and virtual and actual settlement agreements. Attendees will also see presentations on areas of interest ranging from trust taxation to 'lessons learned' from recent celebrity estate controversies. Ethical topics including privilege, conflicts, and engagements will be discussed during the program with those in attendance receiving two full hours of CLE credit. As in past years, this course will feature an engaging and entertaining atmosphere."
