Avoiding Litigation as a Fiduciary

The role of a trustee, personal representative, or other fiduciary can be daunting for the unprepared. Trials and tribulations await even the most experienced professional fiduciaries. In order to succeed in these important roles and avoid unnecessary and often costly litigation, it is critical that fiduciaries become familiar with their duties and execute on a plan to fulfil those duties, communicating with interested parties and setting appropriate expectations along the way. Sometimes this also includes appreciating that “soft skills” can be just as important as the technical ones.

Join Lathrop GPM Partners Alison Zinn and Brian Dillon for an in-depth discussion on avoiding litigation in the fiduciary role. This free webinar will address a variety of topics and include several real-life examples and practical tips for fiduciaries at all levels of experience.
