Sumner Presents on Growing Trend in Trust & Estate Litigation

June 2017

Charleston Litigation Member Robert Sumner presented at the South Carolina Bankers Association Trust & Wealth Management Conference in Columbia, South Carolina on April 25 and led a Commercial Law WebAdvisor Webinar on June 6.  Since the financial crisis, trust and estate litigation has increased at an alarming rate.  The most common targets in these lawsuits are the fiduciaries tasked with maintaining and distributing the trust and estate assets.  Sumner’s presentations titled, “The War Against Fiduciaries: A Growing Trend in Trust & Estate Litigation” explored the different parties who are charged with a fiduciary duty, the duties and obligations of these fiduciaries, and the tools fiduciaries need to prepare for and fight on this growing battlefield.
