Estate planning seems relatively straightforward - a client asks for a will and you draw it up. You do what the client asks, and the client is happy, so all is well, right? Not exactly. Estate planning is complicated - it involves understanding estate and gift tax laws, income tax laws, probate procedure, financial planning, and long-term care planning. It also requires a tremendous amount of research, fact-finding and listening. Lawyers who dabble in will drafting, and even experienced estate planning practitioners who fail to have frank discussions with clients, can cause serious errors and invite negligence claims. Attend this program and learn how you can avoid costly mistakes for your clients, and for you. Experienced estates lawyer Lynne Butler...Read More

When someone transfers money or assets to another, it is not unusual for a third party to question the transaction later. This is especially common among siblings after a parent’s death, where one child who received money, for example, to buy a home or start a business, will usually claim it was a gift and other children or beneficiaries will argue it was a loan. Because such transactions – and the intention behind them – is rarely properly documented, families can spend years fighting over an innocent gesture that at the time was intended to provide support and relief. This highly practical webinar with leading estates lawyer Nicole Ewing, Director, Tax and Estate Planning, TD Wealth will explain...Read More

Do you read "aging client" and move on? Stop! Aging is a continuum that affects our physical, social and legal connections, beginning as early as middle age. All lawyers can expect to encounter new dynamics in their relationship with clients as they age, including planning for and managing incapacity, protecting against abuse, exploitation and discrimination, and maintaining personal autonomy. Milestone events like retirement and later-life marriage and divorce require a more thoughtful lens, but so do quieter transactions like changing names on bank accounts, amending title and share documents, and drafting new powers of attorney. These are challenging conversations that can sometimes create conflicts but if trusted legal counsel doesn’t raise them, who will? This highly practical program with noted elder law lawyer Jan Goddard is designed to enhance your understanding of how specific legal issues related to aging arise in different practice areas, what steps lawyers can take to help safeguard clients' autonomy and self-determination, and general best practices for maintaining high standards of professionalism and service when working with aging clients. Using a combination of fact scenarios and audience polls, Jan will explore...Read More

Virtual examinations now appear to be a permanent part of the litigation landscape. And while the convenience and cost-savings are consistently clear wins for clients, the efficacy and success of a remote examination ultimately rests with counsel. So, how do you prepare for not just the substance of the examination, but also the logistical quirks of proceeding remotely? Should there be an agreement to go off the record when technical issues arise? What are the rules about who can be in the same room as the witness during the examination and how are these enforced? Are there rules for other forms of communication during the examination like texting or chatting? Are documents electronic or paper and how should they be handled? This new, 90-minute webinar with experienced litigation counsel Caroline Abela and Neil Paris will address...Read More

Have you incorporated unbundled legal services or legal coaching into your practice yet? Attend this program and learn how doing things differently can help you do more - to improve access to justice, reduce family conflicts, enhance your career satisfaction, and grow your client base.

And how do you competently and effectively integrate different ways of providing legal services into your family law practice? Join us...Read More
