Estates & Trusts Spring Events

Hull & Hull LLP Estate & Trust Tags: , , , , , , , 0 Comments

Spring is a time for conferences and events.  Here are a few upcoming Estates and Trusts programs you might be interested in.

The Ontario Bar Association is having its annual Dinner with the Honourable Estates List Judges on Tuesday, April 27th at 6:00 p.m. at the OBA Conference Centre in Toronto. It is a great opportunity for estates practitioners to mingle with their own as well as with the Honourable Justices Brown, Conway and Strathy. It has been over a year since the Toronto Estates List Practice Direction so come on out and give some feedback! Last year’s dinner was fun and informative so I expect more of the same this year.

Click here for details and registration.   
 
The OBA is also holding an event on Thursday, May 20th from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. entitled "Solicitors as Attorneys, Trustees and Estate Trustees – What You Need to Know". If you are a lawyer who has taken on any of these roles, or intend to, this program is for you. "Learn how to get paid, how to avoid being sued, and how to manage disputes with family members or co-trustee". That pretty much says it all.

Click here for details and registration.

Osgoode’s 7th Annual Intensive Wills & Estates Workshop, with Hull & Hull LLP’s own Jordan Atin as Workshop Leader, takes place over three Thursday evenings, June 10, 17 & 24, and runs from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the Osgoode Professional Development Centre, Toronto. Jordan has certainly enlightened me on many occasions so I’m sure he can do the same for you.  For a preview, check out this link to see Jordan on Canada AM.

That should be enough ongoing learning to keep you busy until summer vacation…enjoy!

Ode to Brian at the OBA Trusts & Estates Section Year End Dinner

Hull & Hull LLP Archived BLOG POSTS - Hull on Estates Tags: , , , , , , 0 Comments

In Paul Trudelle’s blog of May 31, 2007, Paul commented on the tribute to Brian Schnurr at the Ontario Bar Association Trusts & Estates Section Year End Dinner held on May 30, 2007.  At the Dinner, Brian received the OBA’s Award of Excellence for Trusts & Estates.

Aside from speeches regaling and praising Brian’s accomplishments there was also a surprise tribute written by Rodney Hull Q.C. LSM (with apologies to Gilbert and Sullivan) which was sung by Duncan Miller:

 

He is the very model of a Chancery practitioner
And knows the subtle difference ‘twixt respondent and petitioner
As well he knows that naught with wills is elementary
Except it’s clear that intention must be testamentary
He draws his wills in language incomprehensible
And fobs them off on clients as meaningful and sensible
Although his fees are oft described in terms such as rapacious
They are always paid on time with thanks from clients most gracious
He knows as well to draft his wills with very great acuity
He also knows to stay away from gifts in perpetuity
Unless of course the wish is to benefit some charity
In which case he must specify intent with greater clarity
With words he often tends to convolute
To change a gift from contingent to absolute
At home of little else they talk but the rule in Browne and Moody
To do otherwise it would be a breach of his clear duty
Interpretation of his wills he leaves for the courts to unravel
Which provides an ample and extensive fund for his extensive travel

Duncan did a very charming job of bringing the verse to life and capping a wonderful evening.

Enjoy,

Craig

Jordan Atin Receives Hoffstein Book Prize

Hull & Hull LLP Archived BLOG POSTS - Hull on Estates, Executors and Trustees Tags: , , , , 0 Comments

At Wednesday’s year end dinner for the Ontario Bar Association Trusts and Estates section, we saw the presentation of the Hoffstein Book Prize.

This annual prize was established by Elena Hoffstein upon her receipt of the 2006 Award of Excellence in Trusts and Estates Law. The intention of the prize is to recognize outstanding contributions to the trusts and estates bar by a younger practitioner.

(Contrary to popular belief, the Hoffstein Book Prize is not a prize for writing a book: the prize IS a book.)

This year’s recipient of the Hoffstein book prize in was Jordan Atin, who in fact DID write a book. He is a co-author of The Family War. He is also a frequent speaker at CLE programs, writes extensively, is a contributor to the text Estate Litigation, and is involved in the OBA. Next year, Jordan is the Chair of the Trusts and Estates Section.

Jordan is Senior Associate Counsel at Hull and Hull. It is a privilege to work with him. He is a remarkable resource, and a wonderful person.

Congratulations Jordan.

Paul Trudelle
