Program Summary

Session I - Using LLCs in Estate Planning: Strategies, Benefits and Traps – Roger McClure

LLCs are today’s premium choice for ownership of real estate, businesses and even professional services companies and are often the source and owner of most of the wealth of successful families.

Professionals who know how to plan estates with LLCs have more to offer than those who only know estate planning or business law, but not their combined power. Blending the business to support the estate plan and the estate plan to support the survival of the business requires knowledge of diverse specialties and the human touch.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Structuring Succession Arrangements to Promote Survival Over Generations
  • Tax, Business Structure, Asset Protection and Security Law Issues and Traps
  • How to Avoid Adverse IRS Audit Rules for Partnerships
  • Consistency In Estate and Business Plans

Session II – Legal Ethics – Clare Roubion

A survey of recent rule making, cases, ethics opinions, best practices and related developments in legal ethics, malpractice, and professional responsibility.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Recent Rule Making
  • Cases
  • Ethics Opinions
  • Best Practices and Related Developments in Legal Ethics, Malpractice, and Professional Responsibility

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.
