Course Description

Modern estate planning without consideration of asset protection issues is like planning with blinders on because most clients want to know they are taking full advantage of state and federal laws designed to protect their assets. Miami attorney Phil Rarick, with over 30 years of estate experience, will discuss practical and innovative strategies to weave client estate planning and asset protection objectives into a comprehensive plan. 

As an extra bonus, Jay Beskin, a recognized  Ft. Lauderdale  estate tax attorney and CPA, will discuss the recent Powell V. Commissioner tax court case with special focus on evaluating what entities are now at risk as a result of this critical case, and strategies to protect family LLC’s, limited partnerships and other entities from the impact of Powell.
