Program Overview: You may live, work, and be licensed to practice law in New York, the “concrete jungle where dreams are made of.” But given that the New York estate practitioner often encounters clients, adversaries, and assets outside of New York, mastering New York law is not enough. This program will explore some fundamental issues that arise when New York estates have foreign components including ancillary proceedings; estate planning for New York clients owning foreign assets and foreign clients owning New York assets; issues related to decanting New York trusts to other jurisdictions; choice of law and jurisdictional issues in wills, trusts and agreements; and the various related ethical issues.
