Recent Developments in Elder and Probate Law

The MBA’s popular Recent Developments in the Law programs provide an annual update on the most significant cases and changes in the law. This seminar will review the past year’s major court decisions and developments for both elder and probate law.

The practice of elder law requires a constantly evolving knowledge of statutory, regulatory and administrative interpretation, as well as sharp advocacy techniques. This presentation will summarize the national trends in the practice over the past year, and discuss expectations about how Massachusetts practice will consequently evolve. Our expert probate law panelists will provide a review of decisions relating to estates, trusts, fiduciary duties and related tax issues in Massachusetts. Faculty will also discuss recently promulgated rules and forms for guardianship proceedings in the Probate and Family Courts.

Limited Liability Companies at 20: Cutting Edge Issues

Limited Liability Companies, began with Revenue Ruling 88-76, 1988-2 CB 360 on Sept. 2, 1988. In the two decades since, LLCs have grown from a peculiar form of entity, to the predominant form of organization for small business. In 2006 the number of new LLCs grew by 2.8 percent (from 12,283 to 12,639) while the number of new corporations actually declined by 10.2 percent (from 10,953 to 9,831), and in Delaware, the total number of LLCs is more than 40 percent higher than the total number of corporations.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the advent of this significant form of business organization, national experts who have watched and helped to develop LLC law gather to provide their insight and analysis. Hear from the authors of the three principal treatises on LLCs, as well as others who have shepherded the development of LLCs.
