Peter Klenk Selected to Teach Pennsylvania Bar Institute’s CLE Seminar

Posted on Mon Dec 8, 2014, on Estate Planning

The Pennsylvania Bar Institute, the continuing education arm of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, selected Peter Klenk, the principal at Klenk Law, to teach their CLE seminar on the estate planning impact of Pennsylvania’s Uniform Trust Act. Peter was part of a panel of attorneys chosen for their estate planning expertise and familiarity with Pennsylvania’s Uniform Trust Act.

The three-hour seminar, “Pennsylvania’s Uniform Trust Act: Pitfalls and Solutions,” was held on December 8th in the CLE Conference Center in Philadelphia. Topics covered included:

Fundamental General Changes
Notices
Revocable Trusts vs. Wills
Representation (includes conflicts)
Charitable Trusts and Judicial Proceedings
Non-Judicial Proceedings Modification/Reformation Trust Protectors
Annual Accountings

The seminar provided important information on the practical implications of the Uniform Trust Act, how it impacts estate planning practices and what techniques can be utilized for accounting, filing, claims and virtual representation

Some examples of crucial techniques:

  • Details on when notices of a trust’s existence must be provided to trust beneficiaries
  • The new revocable trust regime and if advantages remain for revocable trusts over wills
  • Beneficiaries’ new authority to modify trusts, including irrevocable trusts
  • Conditions when adult family members can represent minor or future unborn beneficiaries in proceedings or agreements to interpret or modify trusts
  • Drafting trust documents to offer more flexibility to beneficiaries

Peter explained a complex subject very clearly, helped us to decide the best approach to managing our estate and then made it very easy for us to execute the required documents. He will be a valuable resource for years to come and clearly has a great understanding of estate law that will lead to innovative solutions for us.

Peter was excellent. He explained everything very clearly and is super friendly. My wife and I originally tried using a lawyer through group legal coverage, but unfortunately the old adage - "you get what you pay for" - applied to the other lawyer, and we decided to go with a real professional.
