Trust & Estate Litigation Seminars Feature Best & Flanagan Speakers

Best & Flanagan attorneys Bill Asp, Kim Ruckdaschel-Haley and Josh Bobich contributed their knowledge as faculty speakers at Minnesota CLE’s Trust & Estate Litigation in 2023 – We Are Not Alone! forum.

This year’s event explored the intersection of trust and estate litigation with other practice areas to discover opportunities for collaboration. Trust and estate disputes can present a diverse array of issues, including fiduciary problems, family dynamics, creditor issues and unclear estate plans, among others. Because these cases present unique concerns and issues, attorneys need to know how to effectively prevent fights, settle them efficiently or move a case through court when litigation is unavoidable.

Bill Asp presented “Cinderella’s Stepmother – When Trust and Estate Litigation Intersects with Family and Juvenile Law” with Abby Sunberg (Taft). They discussed how issues in the family law context can have a big impact on probating an estate. Guardianships, the elective share, antenuptial agreements and more were explored, along with important questions to ask of clients with minor children and previous marriages.

Kim Ruckdaschel-Haley moderated “Getting Into the Family Business – Strategies for Successfully Transferring the Family Business to the Next Generation.” This panel, made up of Josh Bobich and Jon Keimig (University of St. Thomas Family Business Center), explored a corporate lawyer, litigator, and family business educator’s perspectives for preserving family relationships when an estate involves a family business and the potential issues that may arise among heirs.

Minnesota CLE’s Trust & Estate Litigation in 2023 – We Are Not Alone! sessions were presented in-person on March 7, 2023, and will be re-played online on Tuesday, March 28. Please visit the event’s website for more information.
