It’s difficult to stay on top of the rapid developments in estates and trust law, both legislative and new case law; it’s daunting to look back at what you might have missed. But you have no choice. Whether you’re a solicitor or a barrister—whether you’re advising individual clients about succession planning for their small farm, for example, or representing a large trust company—you need to keep up. Our Six-Minute format is designed to alert you to major changes provincially and is an ideal way to keep pace. Turn to our expert counsel for a comprehensive summary and analysis of legislative developments, recent case law, and best practices.

  • How can you increase the odds of achieving a successful outcome in mediation?
  • What are the pros and cons of certain spousal trust options?
  • How can you accommodate clients with cognitive impairments?
  • What special considerations apply to life insurance and RRSP beneficiary designations for minors?
  • How can you avoid conflicts between the roles of estate solicitor and estate trustee?​
