Maslon is pleased to announce that Julian Zebot, partner in Maslon's Litigation Group, has been appointed as Vice Chair of the ABA Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section's Ethics and Malpractice Committee. The Committee devotes its efforts to issues including the changing role of the lawyer in modern estate planning, the potential liabilities of the estate lawyer to clients and others arising out of a modern trusts and estates law practice, and the developments in the ethical rules affecting both the estate planner and the probate litigator.
Julian focuses his practice on fiduciary and trust litigation as well as business and commercial litigation, including claims of unfair business competition. His fiduciary and trust litigation practice has involved many different types of contested estate, trust, and probate matters, including will/trust contests (including claims of undue influence and diminished capacity), construction/interpretation disputes, accounting actions, breach of fiduciary duty claims, fiduciary removal actions, trust instruction proceedings, and creditor claims against estates. Julian has been selected for inclusion on the Minnesota Rising Stars list every year since 2010.
