Susan Link, Julian Zebot, and Diana Ringuette, all members of Maslon's Estate Planning Group, will present at Minnesota CLE's What Matters Most in Trusts & Estates Practice seminar on September 29, 2015. The seminar will focus on 16 issues that have significant importance to those in the trust & estates field, with some of the best practitioners giving short "TED-Talks"-type presentations.
As course chair, Susan will kick off the day-long event with a welcome and introduction. Throughout the seminar, Susan will moderate four panels illustrating scenarios that have significant importance to those in the trust & estates field. Julian and Diana will also participate in the fourth and third panel sessions, respectively, moderated by Susan.
In the afternoon, Diana will present a session titled, "Avoiding Litigation! How to Steer Clear of Problematic Drafting," that will provide an analysis of actual cases in which imprecise (or otherwise problematic) drafting led to litigation and tips on how to avoid these problems. Later, in an afternoon session titled, "How to Avoid a Fight," Julian will share tips and best practices for minimizing the risk of a will contest.
