About Laily Pirbhai

A “personne de confiance” at the planning table.

Estate planning is so much more than drafting a Will or a trust. Engaging input from advisors in various areas including wealth management, law, taxation, insurance, investment management and charitable gift planning are collectively vital to ensure testators’ financial assets can be transferred seamlessly and efficiently.

Equally vital is ensuring that the client’s “why” is thoughtfully integrated into the Will. Sometimes, Wills may contain outdated bequest language or charitable intentions that may be difficult to execute. Speak with your legal counsel on their recommendations for review and frequency of Will updates.  Inserting charitable bequest language that is broader and possibly more prevailing, or creating gifting instruments during lifetime that capture testator’s charitable wishes can be options worth exploring. I can help guide these and other philanthropic planning processes.
