2020 Trust & Estate Planning for MDs, JDs, CPAs & Other Professionals, Part 2

Total Credits: 1.2 Self Study, 0.0 Kansas Credit


Estate planning for professionals – physicians, lawyers, accounts and others – and executives raises challenging issues for the planner. These clients may have high incomes but their retirement assets are highly concentrated in restrictive retirement plans. Their tangible assets tend to be the target of claimants, such as former clients in fiduciary litigation, tort claimants, former spouse and others.  Planning for these clients involves preserving tangible assets from potential claimants and working with restrictive retirement plans or illiquid tangible assets. This program will provide you with a guide to issues and techniques when planning for professionals and executives. 

Day 1

  • Estate planning and asset protection for professionals – physicians, lawyers, accountants, and executives
  • Key threats to wealth preservation – challenges to martial agreements, fiduciary claims, bankruptcy, and creditor claims
  • Planning for highly concentrated assets in qualified plans – 401(k)s, IRAs, defined contribution plans
  • Planning with deferred compensation, Section 409A and non-eligible retirement assets

Day 2

  • Spendthrift trusts, LLCs and other wealth protection vehicles for professionals and executives
  • Risks of fraudulent transfers in trust planning
  • Insurance and annuity products to shield assets and produce income over time
  • Planning with trusts to provide for family and the education of children
