"Important Issues in Modern Trust Design"
Building flexibility into trust agreements (including Life Insurance Trusts) that may control wealth for decades - or even generations – will highlight this program. As the rule book that governs assets expands, it is critical that trust agreements be flexible enough to address the countless unforeseeable events that will occur with respect to the assets, beneficiaries, and the world at large over time. Mr. Macklin will also discuss many sample trust provisions that should be included in most trust agreements, but typically are not.
