Helping advisors assist their clients when dealing with family property.

On May 19, 2015 The Denver Foundation hosted over 100 local attorneys, financial advisors, and CPAs for a presentation by Wendy S. Goffe of Stoel Rives LLP in Seattle, WA.  Wendy’s talk, “From NASCAR Condominiums to Private Mausoleums: Keeping the Home in the Family” discussed the types of conflict that arise when families try to hold onto property, methods for transferring ownership to charity and the next generation, and approaches to help maintain family harmony once the property has passed down.

Local experts share charitable, financial, and estate planning strategies.

In March, The Denver Foundation held the 2015 Panel Discussion on Charitable, Financial, and Estate Planning Issues. The featured panelists were David L. Starbuck of BakerHostetler, Bridget K. Sullivan of Sherman & Howard, LLC, and Stephanie M. Tuthill of Tuthill & Hughes, LLP. The moderator was Robert Phelps of JPMorgan Private Bank.
