Power of Attorney: Practice and Litigation (2012)
This important program highlights practical aspects of working in the still quite new legal landscape since New York’s Power of Attorney law was overhauled and the new statutory Power of Attorney form introduced. Both trusts and estates lawyers and litigators will benefit from this program; the panelists address good planning and drafting and how it may avoid litigation, and they also discuss how to approach and handle a matter that ends up in court.
Issues the speakers consider include:
* What are lawyers doing with POAs and what can a good one
Much time is devoted to the conduct of the agent, including remedies for abusive transactions. The program concludes with a case study of how to handle a corrupt agent.
• Overview of Powers of Attorney
• Doing It Right: Activities and Recordkeeping
• Issues Related to Gifting
• Powers of Attorney vs. Trusts
• Remedies for Abusive Transactions
• Case Study of the Nefarious Agent
