This program provides insight from a corporate fiduciary’s perspective on one of the most overlooked yet most common asset class in a probate or trust administration. While this asset class is typically not a large percentage of the gross estate, it can require a substantial amount of time in its administration as well as provide for significant risk to the fiduciary. Drafting considerations will be discussed so that planners can work to manage that risk and cost of administration.
Understand practical skills that attorneys utilize every day, including effective legal writing in pleadings, presentation of motions, effective oral arguments, and the use of electronic court orders.

They also discuss presentment of motions, and effective advocacy skills during oral argument.
