2022 Heckerling Roundup

The 56th Annual Heckerling Institute of Estate Planning took place at the end of March, and as we have in prior years, InterActive Legal is proud to present its yearly round-up of the best topics that were discussed.  The Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning is the country’s largest and leading conference for estate planners, attorneys, trust officers, accountants, financial planners, insurance advisors, and wealth management professionals. This year we are honored to welcome attorney Abigail O’Connor, who will join Martin Shenkman and Jonathan Blattmachr to recount the important takeaways from the 2022 virtual conference.  In this webinar, Abby, Marty, and Jonathan will provide a 90-minute analysis and review of the week-long proceedings along with valuable materials summarizing this year’s Institute.

Topics at the Institute included: recent statutory and regulatory developments (including pending legislation); recent important cases; modification of irrevocable trusts; the new SECURE Act proposed regulations; elective share and other marital property issues; partnership taxation, ethical and diversity issues in estate planning; cross-border estate planning; and so much more.
