Overview of Presentation:

The presentation will provide estate and financial planners an overview of how their practice may be affected by a client or beneficiary who may suffer from some sort of “behavioral disorder.”  The issues that may arise in this context include the capacity to:  (i) execute documents; (ii) accept a beneficial interest in an estate or trust ; and (iii) serve as a fiduciary.  The presentation includes practice pointers with regard to how to manage--and avoid--conflicts that the presenters have seen arise when dealing with a client or beneficiary with a “behavioral disorder.”
