Digital Assets Revisited: Preparing for the Tsunami

Digital assets have been on the radar of estate planners for many years, but their scope has recently expanded – exponentially.

The pandemic forced more people online than ever before, and each account, domain name, and other online presence may need to be addressed in some way when a client dies, or becomes incapacitated. Attorneys who both plan estates and administer them therefore need to understand the underlying issues related to different types of digital property.

Join us as experts in the area of digital assets cover the issues you should address with every client, and discuss helpful tools that may also assist with handling digital assets for your clients. The presenters will discuss:

  • The digitization of estate planning
  • How attorneys must adapt to new technology, or face being left behind
  • Digital asset problems in estate administration and how to handle them
  • How to handle digital assets when planning an estate – what to ask and what to look for
  • Why a standard provision in a Will or Trust may not be enough
  • Best practices
  • And more

Don’t miss this timely discussion of a topic that most of us may feel we have adequately covered, but actually may need to address in much more detail.

Single Clients: Planning Considerations

Too often planning articles and conferences use a “Cleaver family” as the touchstone for planning. The reality is that intact married family units constitute a small percentage of the population. Further, a tremendous percentage of the population is single and the proportion of the population that is single has grown substantially over the decades and that trend may continue. Over 50% of the population, about 125 million adults are single. That has increased dramatically from 1950 when the percentage was less than half that amount, 22%. Tax laws often favor married couples. Consider the unlimited estate tax marital deduction for US citizen spouses. The new proposals for deemed realization have an exclusion for US spouses that is not available to the heirs of a single client. Spousal rights of election protect a spouse from disinheritance. In contrast an unmarried partner may have little or no protection. How should documents be drafted differently? How might tax and other planning change? This webinar will provide a review of many of the nuances of planning for the single client.
