MCLE: 1.00 Hour(s)

About the Event: Often an attorney will utilize the trust form supplied by an offshore trustee company to expedite the process of implementing an asset protection trust for the client. We have found serious problems with such supplied trust forms. Quite frequently such forms do not take into consideration U.S. tax consequences and other important matters.

This presentation covers the use of special provisions for asset protection trusts (applicable to both domestic and offshore trusts). The discussion includes (examples): trust protector provisions (an oversight facility) – what they are, sample language, how they are used, what they should include; flight provisions (moving the trust from one jurisdiction to another) – what they are, sample language, how they are used, when it is appropriate to use, what they should include, mechanism to ensure its functionality; duress provision – what it is, sample language, how it is used, what it should include, mechanism to ensure voluntary acts only; effect of discretionary distribution/allocation provisions, and others.
