Estate Planning To
and Digital Assets
Balancing future needs against current realities is challenging in all areas of law. But the stakes become large and
very personal for those in estate planning law practice.
Like estates large and not-so-large, good and bad economies present their own unique problems to those in estate planning. In the
latter half of 2016, we see an economy growing in strength. But as all boats rise, it becomes more likely that some will be swamped
by the swells—not a swell outcome for clients.
What can lawyers do to serve clients on a tumultuous sea?
Along with economic challenges, estate planning must contend with myriad modern tools that complicate and improve our lives.
For instance, nearly all of us have digital assets that may be valuable—and at least significant—to us. How do we ensure that those
assets find a preferred home in the event of our death or disability?
This month, our authors explore estate planning in a modern age. They cover best practices in maintaining the value of an inheritance, as well as how to get digital assets to the heirs you select.
