Drafting Trusts: Learning From the Mistakes of Others
In this presentation, Stephen Liss uses examples from actual client documents to demonstrate common drafting errors. These examples have been collected during his twenty years of practice, including seven years working in financial services. Stephen will explore the most likely causes of these errors and draw lessons of broader applicability. It is hoped that from understanding the mistakes others have made, attendees will learn to draft trusts that are more tax efficient, creditor proof, flexible, easier for clients to understand, less ambiguous, shorter, and more elegant. If nothing else, attendees should expect to leave amused.
