Kristin Abati and Renat Lumpau on Decanting Without a Statute in Trusts & Estates Magazine

Kristin Abati and Renat Lumpau wrote “Decanting Without a Statute:  The Lessons of Kraft” in Trusts & Estates, a peer-reviewed journal for estate planning professionals.  They discuss a recent Massachusetts case that may help estate planning practitioners determine whether it’s possible to decant a trust – make distributions from one trust to another – under common law in jurisdictions where there is no applicable state decanting statute.
