An expert faculty will explore the scope and limitations of the jurisdiction of the Surrogate's Court to require Executors and Trustees to fully account for all underlying transactions of a closely held business in which an Estate or Trust holds an interest, including a partial interest. And to the extent the Surrogates Court lacks jurisdiction, we will discuss alternatives that beneficiaries and fiduciaries may pursue outside of the Surrogates Court to obtain such information.
This CLE will also discuss practice tips for trust and estate planners regarding potential ownership structures and corporate governance provisions to carry out a testator's wishes in deciding whether or not he/she wants his/her fiduciaries to be required to account to the respective beneficiaries for all business-level (as opposed to investor-level) transactions conducted by the closely held business, and particularly whether such accounting should take place in the Surrogates Court or some other court.
Who Should Attend: This CLE is intended for both trust and estate litigators and planners of all experience levels.
