J.K. Hage III will be speaking at the 2014 NTCA Legal Seminar on November 10, 2014, in Austin, Texas, on estate planning for family and small businesses. At this session, we will focus on ways to mitigate succession and inheritance challenges through careful estate planning to provide for the orderly transfer of assets. We will discuss the impact of state and federal laws and the legal means necessary to maintain the security of well-made plans, including wills, trusts and powers of attorney.
