14th Annual International Estate Planning Institute
The New York State Bar Association and The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners USA (STEP USA) are pleased to present the 14th Annual International Estate Planning Institute. Chaired by G. Warren Whitaker, this Institute is a much anticipated annual event at which trust and estate practitioners, bankers and accountants from around the world gather to hear the leaders in their fields exchange ideas and discuss developments regarding cross-border planning with a U.S. component.
With the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act signed on Dec. 22, 2017 come many significant provisions that have a direct impact on planning for international private clients, including non-U.S. individual taxpayers with U.S. assets, U.S. individuals and trusts with offshore assets, and offshore structures for the benefit of U.S. persons. Some of these changes may require the reorganization of many existing structures. These issues and many more will be covered in detail at the Institute.
There will be plenty of networking time, permitting you to pose questions to the faculty, compare notes with fellow practitioners in the legal, banking and accounting fields and visit with sponsors. A luncheon on the first day of the Institute and an evening cocktail reception will afford attendees opportunities for networking and enjoying the company of your peers.
Sponsored by , the International Section, the Trusts & Estates Law Section and the Committee on Continuing Legal Education of the New York State Bar Association.
