About the program…
This presentation will give a brief overview of some key components of HB 479 (2012), most notably its provisions regarding “legacy trusts” (i.e., Ohio domestic asset protection trusts).  The program will discuss some potential uses of legacy trusts and will warn of some pitfalls that might not be apparent from the face of the statute.
