Program Description and Benefits:
The term “irrevocable” has taken on a new, counter-intuitive meaning. Numerous legal mechanisms have evolved to facilitate trust modification, premature termination and decanting. Changing an irrevocable trust is often appropriate, but in some circumstances, there is a dark side. This session will examine both the constructive as well as the undesirable results of trust reengineering.
