You've worked hard to develop and grow your business and to invest and amass your estate. And, with continuing attention, those assets will continue to grow and generate income for the rest of your life. But have you taken the steps necessary to assure that your estate will continue to be appropriately managed if you are no longer capable of doing so? Have you planned for the transfer of your assets to family, charity or other beneficiaries at your death or through lifetime giving? Will those transfers minimize estate taxes and avoid probate court costs and delays?
