Virtual Morning Meeting: What do you mean I cannot take that money? Fiduciary Duties and Estate/Trust Litigation
Fiduciary selection is crucial to the success of an estate plan. Even a great plan can go awry if a fiduciary fails to uphold his or her fiduciary duties or fails to follow the terms of the Will or Trust. Add family dynamics to an already stressful situation and things go from bad to worse. Even well-intentioned fiduciaries should be concerned about the potential liability for breach of a fiduciary duty.
This presentation will focus on the steps that can be taken to reduce the likelihood of estate/trust litigation and how to properly advise a fiduciary to ensure they are not in breach of their fiduciary duties.
By attending this session advisors will learn:
- What duties a fiduciary owes to the principal and beneficiaries.
- What factors to consider when selecting a fiduciary.
- What steps can be taken to reduce the likelihood of estate litigation.
