Trusts and Estates practice head Joshua Rubenstein will present "Famous Will and Trust Contests: Lessons from the Land of Litigation" session during the Transcontinental Trusts: International Forum 2016 on Tuesday, May 10 at 11:55 a.m. A number of high profile trust and estate contests have emanated from the United States, with many lessons to be learned—hopefully from other people's mistakes. This presentation will offer views on some of the most noteworthy cases and how they can be expected to impact upon future cases of similar nature. Common recipes for disaster that will be addressed include:
- marrying the trophy wife;
- marrying the caretaker;
- deathbed marriages;
- balancing multiple families; and
- successioning the family business.
