Aging population needs legal expertise
Posted by Lynne Butler
While the following article from www.lawyersweekly.ca was actually written to be read by lawyers and other professionals in the estate planning field, I believe it makes good reading for clients too. It does a great job of explaining what we as lawyers are trying to achieve with our clients, and what clients expect from us. It also talks about some of the challenges that lawyers and executors will face, particularly with respect to after-death tax issues. I hope that those of you who are doing your own estate planning and thinking about who should be your executor will read this article and understand the kind of thing that executors face.
