The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act greatly impacts the work of accountants and other tax professionals who practice in the areas of trusts and estates. This webinar will review the relevant provisions of the new tax act, as it impacts the taxation of estates and trusts. Among the specific topics we will cover are:
Tim Ferges concentrates his practice in all areas of trust and estate law, including trust and estate litigation, estate planning, and trust and estate administration. He advocates for clients in disputed estate and trust matters before the courts of New Jersey and New York. His matters include will contests, in which he brings and defends challenges to wills on grounds of lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence, fraud, and other claims. Mr. Ferges also brings and defends breach of fiduciary duty claims and handles contested accounting proceedings, will and trust construction matters, and other fiduciary disputes. He represents beneficiaries, individual fiduciaries, large institutional trust companies, as well as charitable and non-profit organizations in those disputes.
Mr. Ferges further counsels high net worth individuals and families in estate planning and estate administration matters. He works with clients to reach their estate planning goals while integrating asset protection and minimizing exposure to income and transfer taxes.
