This month, Minnesota CLE hosted two forums featuring Best & Flanagan attorneys as speakers.
The Complete Real Estate Lawyer is a fast-paced seminar designed to give a crash course in fourteen different areas of real estate law in one day. In his session, Craig Kepler covers Easements and answers questions such as, “I agreed to my neighbor widening his driveway, but a recent survey shows the driveway crosses the boundary and is on my land. What can I do?” Or, “My previous neighbor allowed me to park my boat trailer on his lot for 20 years, but the new owner says I can no longer park my boat trailer anymore. Do I have an easement for parking?”
All sessions for The Complete Real Estate Lawyer were presented in-person on June 7, 2023, and will be re-played online on Thursday, June 29.
The 2023 Probate and Trust Law Section Conference featured seminars with Best & Flanagan’s Bill Asp, Kim Ruckdaschel-Haley, Josh Bobich, and Jennifer Lammers. This year’s conference was designed to provide practical analysis, tips and strategies, as well as annual updates surrounding new laws, rules, cases and trends for trust and estate lawyers.
In the session, “Cinderella’s Stepmother – When Trust and Estate Litigation Intersects with Family and Juvenile Law,” Bill Asp and Abby Sunberg (Taft) discussed how issues in the family law context can have a big impact on probating an estate. They explored guardianships, the elective share, antenuptial agreements and more, 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 Julie Keyes (KeyeStrategies, LLC), explored a corporate lawyer, litigator, and exit planning consultant’s perspectives for preserving family relationships when an estate involves a family business and the potential issues that may arise among heirs.
Finally, Jennifer Lammers joined Lauren Winter Routhier (Stinson) and Edward Tully (Lathrop GPM) for the “Large Estates Panel” moderated by Michael Sampson (Maslon) to discuss estate planning in uncertain economic times.
The 2023 Probate and Trust Law Section Conference was presented in-person on June 12-13, 2023, and will be replayed online on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 11-12. For more information, please visit the event’s website.
