Commonwealth’s President, Cynthia D.M. Brown, speaks on Domestic Asset Protection Planning

October 3, 2014

Delaware is one of 15 states that allow some form of an asset protection trust, including inter vivos QTIP trusts. The proliferation of domestic asset protection trusts leaves attorneys inquiring about the laws in each asset protection state and the benefits of creating such a trust in one state versus another.

The upcoming eCLE on Domestic Asset Protection Trust Planning entitled There’s No Place Like Home – Domestic Self-Settled Asset Protection Trusts and Inter Vivos QTIP Trusts: Why Do Them and Where To Go When You Do offered by the American Bar Association’s Section of Real Property & Trust Estate Law includes as a speaker our President, Cynthia D.M. Brown.

This webinar will address some of the full blown domestic self-settled asset protection trust statutes and inter vivos QTIP trust statutes. The course is being offered on Tuesday October 14, 2014.

Cindy looks forward to speaking on the foregoing topics and welcomes any questions you may have. In that regard, please direct any questions to her by email at or by phone at 302.658.7214.
