This revised fifth edition from estate-planning expert Harvey J. Platt details the most up-to-date strategies for using a living trust to create a flexible estate plan. Platt explains the latest tax laws, including the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, the broadening of statutes for amending trusts, and the rule against perpetuities (RAP). Platt also addresses updates on many existing topics, including lifetime exemptions; the estate, gift, and generation-skipping tax; charitable deductions; state estate tax savings; and private annuities. <br /><i> Your Living Trust & Estate Plan</i> maps out the most effective techniques for saving money and property and covers the essentials of successful estate planning. Other resources frequently overlook vital areas such as unlocking the benefits of living trusts, protecting beneficiaries, using life insurance, handling retirement benefits properly, and fixing inadequate estate planning postmortem, but Your Living Trust is the complete guide. This invaluable resource will teach you how to maximize your family’s assets, plan your estate, and provide for your loved ones well into the future.

Remain ever current and ensure that you have the most updated version of this publication by visiting PLI.edu. <br />Attorney-Client Privilege Answer Book is a practical resource for attorneys and clients seeking to understand the most significant privilege in the practice of law. The book, written in question-and-answer format, examines the boundaries of the privilege, providing guidance on issues that attorneys grapple with on a regular basis as to what is — and is not — covered by the privilege, and how the privilege is protected and lost.<br /><br />Among the topics receiving in-depth treatment are what constitutes “attorney,” “client,” and “communication” for purposes of the privilege; choice-of law issues; waiver; and exceptions to the privilege. The 2018 edition is updated and expanded throughout, reflecting the most current state of the law. New material in the 2018 edition includes:<br /><br />• New discussion of the “functional equivalent” test regarding whether the privilege applies to communications between independent contractors working for a company and the company’s lawyer<br /><br />• New discussion of whether emails that an employee sends to his or her attorney using his or her employer’s system are confidential<br /><br />• Updated guidance on preventing waiver of the privilege when privileged documents are inadvertently produced during discovery, using mechanisms provided by Federal Rule of Evidence 502

Customer Reviews
Professors Fischl and Paul explain law school exams in ways no one has before, all with an eye toward improving the reader’s performance. The book begins by describing the difference between educational cultures that praise students for “right answers,” and the law school culture that rewards nuanced analysis of ambiguous situations in which more than one approach may be correct. Enormous care is devoted to explaining precisely how and why legal analysis frequently produces such perplexing situations.<br /><br />But the authors don’t stop with mere description. Instead, Getting to Maybe teaches how to excel on law school exams by showing the reader how legal analysis can be brought to bear on examination problems. The book contains hints on studying and preparation that go well beyond conventional advice. The authors also illustrate how to argue both sides of a legal issue without appearing wishy-washy or indecisive. Above all, the book explains why exam questions may generate feelings of uncertainty or doubt about correct legal outcomes and how the student can turn these feelings to his or her advantage.<br /><br />In sum, although the authors believe that no exam guide can substitute for a firm grasp of substantive material, readers who devote the necessary time to learning the law will find this book an invaluable guide to translating learning into better exam performance.

Chief Operating Officer is one of the most complex senior management roles in organisations today. It embraces a range of disciplines, from Technology to Human Resources, from Legal to Risk. Yet, unlike other senior executive roles, there is no established framework or body of knowledge to support the COO. <br />This book de-mystifies the COO role and breaks it into 16 core elements; the three fundamental pillars of Culture, Strategy and Change, plus 13 technical areas. It outlines responsibilities, warning signs, and how to boost performance. It equips you with the questions you need to ask to gain early insight, diagnose the issues and move into execution.<br />Drawing on industry standards and enriched with expert insight and real-life current examples, it condenses a vast range of knowledge and experience into one accessible read. This book, which can be consumed in one sitting, will make you a more effective leader, faster. This is the book that current COOs wish they had at the outset of their journey. It is the book that your CEO, Board and team need you to read.<br /><br />‘A must-read guide for all aspiring COOs. Packed with practical insights and based on real life experiences, it gives a clear and powerful road map for this transformational organizational role.’<br />Justin Forsyth, Deputy Executive Director, UNICEF <br /><br />‘It is rare for a single book to command such breadth of expertise, practical insight and advice that is so easy to put into action. This is a consequence of the superb clarity of Jennifer’s writing, and the fact that she has earned her expertise – and the scars that come with it – from working on the business end of the stick for over twenty years.’<br />Mark Waddington, CEO, Hope and Homes for Children<br /><br />‘Crisply written, clear and to the point.’<br />Ben Brabyn, CEO, Level 39<br /><br />‘An impressive read. De-codes the very tricky role of COO and inspires you on how to be a great one.’<br />Niamh O’Keeffe, Author of “Your First 100 days” and “Your Next Role”<br /><br />‘The defining text on the role of the COO and its component parts. This is an informative and useful read for existing COOs. It is a must read for new COOs, aspiring COOs and most importantly CEOs and Heads of HR in hiring COOs for their organisations.'<br />Paul Ford, CEO, Anchura Partners<br /><br /> <br />‘The role of COO is a balancing act, and requires multiple hard and soft skills. This nifty handbook provides a shortcut to understand the critical skills required, and is filled with nuggets of practical and accessible advice.’<br />Sinead Mahon, Banking COO<br /><br />‘This book takes one of the most frameless and unstructured roles in business today, and using personal experiences seeks to help others to demystify the role and deliver insight on how to be effective and successful. Insightful and extensive, a book I would have loved to have access to when I was starting out in my career.’<br />Pam Murphy, COO, Infor
