Silent Trusts:  What You Need to Know About the 2015 Notice Act (2/10/16)
1.5 hours CLE credit
Delaware State Bar Association
Georgetown - Tunnell & Raysor
Delaware has long permitted the creator of a trust to keep the existence of that trust a secret from beneficiaries “for a period of time” – a valuable feature for grantors seeking to benefit descendants without spoiling them through the promise of wealth, but a potential minefield for trustees.  We now have additional statutory guidance regarding these so-called “silent trusts,” as well as new tools for managing the interests of screened-off beneficiaries. Whether you draft trusts, advise trustees, or are simply interested in learning more, please join us for a lively discussion of the new law, trustee best practices, drafting tips and real world scenarios.  DSB02102016SILEN
