The Law of Trusts and Estates

The law of trusts and estates primarily involves the management of personal affairs and the disposition of a person’s property after he or she has died or become incapacitated. A “trust” is a legal concept whereby a grantor transfers legal ownership of property to a separate legal entity (a “Trust”) controlled by a trustee. Trust assets typically are managed for the benefit of one or more beneficiaries. An estate generally consists of the property that a person bequeaths to their heirs after his/her death, which usually involves a testamentary instrument such as a will.
