Estate Planning for High Net Worth Clients

1.5 Credit Hours

Aaron Jackson, Attorney

Jackson Law Firm, Mechanicsburg, PA

There are special considerations when we work with clients that have a particularly high net worth. The presentation discusses the most common goals of high net worth families as well as several specific techniques regarding strategies to accomplish those goals. While we as professionals often jump to the conclusion that these clients care most about financial concerns, the first part of the presentation focuses on the fact that the most common concern is still almost always family governance or the continued success of a family business. Therefore, it is imperative to discuss both family control and business succession plans with them.

The presentation also review the current status of the most potentially damaging taxes to larger estates. This topic is particularly interesting to attendees because of the differing opinions as to what the political change will bring. The presentation looks at several viewpoints and discusses different outcomes based on each “prediction.”

The most substantial portion of the presentation focuses on specific planning techniques for high net worth clients. The three particular topics that are discussed include estate freezing strategies and their usefulness in the future, tax exempt wealth transfers, and creditor protection planning.

Finally, the presentation closes with a brief discussion regarding the importance of each individual professional role in the planning process. The focus point is the much greater likelihood of success with a client when a multi-disciplinary process is employed rather than “siloed” professionals
