Now’s the Time: Estate Planning During the Pandemic

The coronavirus has been devastating to many – both personally and economically. At the same time, the pandemic has created a unique opportunity, through the current estate and gift tax laws, to plan or reconsider one’s estate plan and lock in estate tax savings for those with significant assets. That window of opportunity may soon close.

On September 22, 2020, join us for a webinar featuring Stephen E. Bonder, Partner at blumshapiro, Juliette M. Galicia, Partner at Lourie & Cutler, P.C., Jonothan Korb, General Counsel at Loring Wolcott & Coolidge, and Eric Allon, Bernkopf Goodman LLP’s business and commercial real estate partner.

The panel will discuss why now is the right time to handle estate plans, explain unique tax implications and illustrate mistakes and successful estate plans.
