Wealth Planning for a Brave New World: It’s All In the Family…What’s a Family?


The structure of the American family has changed dramatically in the last few decades, presenting creative opportunities to develop estate plans and design trusts that will best serve the needs of contemporary families. This presentation will examine generational attributes, the changes in marriage and family structure, and their implications for estate planning, trust design, and family collaboration and decision making.
