Who Should Attend

This program is suitable for both experienced estates practitioners who want to refresh their knowledge of joint assets as an estate planning strategy, and those newer to an estates practice who are curious about joint ownership as an estate planning tool.

About the Program

Joint ownership is frequently used in estate planning as a strategy to minimize probate fees and simplify estate administration. However, joint ownership may not be useful in all circumstances and decisions on such transfers should not be made lightly. This highly practical, 90 minute webinar with leading estates and trusts lawyer Jordan Atin will review the contexts in which joint ownership may be appropriate, factors to consider before recommending using joint ownership to clients as an estate planning tool, and unintended consequences of using joint ownership during and after the original owner’s life. Among the topics Jordan will address are:

  • loss of control over assets
  • exposing assets to creditors
  • inappropriate estate distribution
  • income tax implications
  • probate
  • proper legal documentation

While joint ownership may seem to be a simple solution to address common estate planning goals, using it successfully requires careful consideration of its benefits and pitfalls, and each client’s unique circumstances. Attend this program and get the expert guidance you need to help your clients make more informed decisions and avoid unexpected issues for them and their ultimate beneficiaries.
