The Inaugural Blog

Hull & Hull LLP Uncategorized Tags: 0 Comments

Welcome to the inaugural Hull Estate blog. With the fast moving pace of the social media a blog on this topic seemed to be a natural fit.

I mean, why not try to look at issues of death and succession, and in particular, look at these issues before your death and before a family fight begins. The central theme of this blog will of course be estates and estate related matters.

However, an important sub topic will be to address the question as to why our culture spends so much time accumulating wealth and yet does not put the same , or even close, value on planning for the succession of our wealth. Starting with the funeral arrangements right through to distributing many millions of dollars, beneficiaries fighting is almost inevitable.

The family fight is not something we spend enough time planning to avoid.

However, as with everything in life, it is really a question of degree and what is an acceptable level of conflict.

This blog is going to look at estate issues and estate planning from all perspectives including a more bottom up estate planning process, as opposed to a top down model that exists in the minds of most people today.

We have started our social media efforts already and you can listen to our podcasts that are currently on itunes. We have a series of weekly podcasts (14 podcasts so far). One podcast deals with legal issues of interest to lawyers and the other deals with general estate planning issues designed for the lawyer and the client.

We continue to focus on a more inclusive approach to estate issues and consider such issues as the "High Price of Not Talking" about your estate plan with your family.

We would love feedback and we hope to be able to generate some excitement about this new social media outlet and hope that we can generate some real debate in the process. So welcome and I hope you enjoy the ride ! ——–
