Managing A Trust After Incapacitation Or Death
After incapacitation or death, trustees are often in a difficult situation, without knowledge of how to properly manage a trust or deal with beneficiaries. After the formation of a trust, it must be funded and properly administered.
Trustees have a fiduciary duty to properly manage investments and the operation of a trust, and to make appropriate disbursements. At Spano & Dawicki, LLC, we offer experienced, strategic support to our clients, including trustees and beneficiaries with an interest in trust administration.
After death or incapacitation, our attorneys will help trustees carry out their fiduciary duties and legal obligations or represent beneficiaries seeking to protect their own financial interests. If you are a trustee, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney to avoid potential liability for improper administration or a failure to uphold fiduciary obligations.
Our Massachusetts trust management attorneys are experienced with trust administration, including:
- Management of trusts
- Asset distribution
- Asset protection
- Tax obligations
- Trust disputes
- Representation for beneficiaries
