Sutherland assists executors of estates, multiple family trusts in court action over assets.

Region
North Carolina
Description
Sutherland helped the executors of seven decedents' estates and multiple family trusts in a court action involving two high-value North Carolina-based trusts. All of the beneficiaries had died and applicable state law was ambiguous as to who should receive the trust assets. After two years of negotiations involving multiple interested parties, the parties reached a settlement with a Sutherland-drafted comprehensive trust distribution agreement that was approved by the court. Despite significant estate tax issues, the IRS accepted all the estate tax returns without audit thanks to our coordination of all positions with the potential for estate tax exposure.
