Michael Sampson, partner in Maslon's Estate Planning Group, will present on Minnesota's new Uniform Trust Code for a Minnesota State Bar Association Probate & Trust Law Section luncheon on January 6, 2016. In his one hour session titled, "New Opportunities for Planning and Administration Under the Minnesota Trust Code," Michael will discuss four significant new provisions of the Minnesota Trust Code: Silent Trusts, Directed Trusts, Decanting, and Non-Judicial Agreements, focusing on how they will affect the approach to drafting new documents as well as whether, and how, they can be implemented into existing trust arrangements. He will also explain the statutory provisions and provide examples of how the provisions might work in practice.
Michael's legal practice focuses on high-end estate and tax planning, estate and trust administration, charitable planning, and business succession planning. Michael helps his clients focus on what it is they really want to accomplish with their wealth. After assisting his clients in identifying their specific wealth planning goals, Michael works with them and their other professional advisors to develop and implement wealth transfer strategies that are consistent not only with their goals, but also with their cash flow needs and tolerance for risk.
