The Great Debate: Tackling Unsettled Issues in Trusts and Estates Law

  • Event Date February 6, 2020 09:00

Ontario Bar Association’s Institute

Back by popular demand, hear expert practitioners debate the most pressing and unsettled issues in trusts and estates law today. Gather helpful insights for a balanced view on the thorny legal issues to help you resolve them in your practice and better represent your clients.

Program topics include:

  • Rubner v. Bistricer elevates failed gifts into enforceable trusts
  • There is no limitation period on a will challenge
  • Lawyers should generally recommend that powers of attorney for property only become effective on incapacity
  • Third-party litigation funding is a boon for clients, lawyers, and access to justice
  • Alter ego trusts should be standard estate planning tools, not just for the sophisticated lawyer and client
