Best Practices for Preserving Testamentary Intent in Wealth Transfers
This course is designed to help estate planners understand best practices to ensure that client testamentary intent is achieved. Clients may be subject to various forms of interference with their goals via undue influence, tortious interference with testamentary intent, elder abuse, breach of fiduciary duty, and contractual interference.

Best practices include clarifying and documenting client objectives, being alert to situations that may give rise to interference, and coordinating all assets, particularly contractual assets.
