Trusts & Estates Partner, Lauren Wolven will be a presenter in ALI CLE’s Estate Planning in Depth 2019 program.  Lauren will present on, “Incentive Trusts and Planning Across Generations.”

"Shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three generations" is a well-known phrase. The first generation creates the wealth. The second generation, having seen the struggles to create the family fortune, preserves the wealth. The third generation, growing up with wealth but usually without experiencing the work to create it, dissipates the family wealth. The fourth generation is then left to start from scratch – from shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves. this presentation will address planning for transition of wealth including:

  • The pros and cons of incentive provisions
  • Crafting experience opportunities into trusts
  • Drafting suggestions to avoid "trust fund babies"
