"A Look Inside the Estate Planning Industry: Key Findings from the 4th Annual Industry Trends Survey"
Trusts & Estates, January 2011
"The survey's findings are generally consistent with what we have observed in our practice, with a few slight differences," said attorney Julie K. Kwon of McDermott Will & Emery LLP in Menlo Park, CA. "The economic downturn actually did not depress our business very much; our group remained tremendously busy as our clients took advantage of the wealth transfer opportunities given unusually low asset valuations and interest rates that drive planning vehicles. As a result, we have added attorneys to our group nationally and expanded Private Client to an additional office," Kwon stated.
