Other Services Related to Retirement, Ageing,
End-of-Life and Estate Planning Issues
 
Key-Note Presentations:

We can generally speak in front of any group about retirement planning, aging, and end-of-life issues. In addition to the the legal issues, we understand the social, psychological, and health issues that generally accompany retirement, especially if retirement is sudden because of health issues or the loss of a job. Although we can produce a catalogue of developed presentations and handouts, we can tailor new presentations to the needs of any specific audience.

 
Assisting FInancial Service Professionals:
If you are a financial services professional, you will most likely need to deal with retirement plan issues with your clients.  Many larger firms have a retirement Subject Matter Expert acting as Of Counsel.  If you are not large enough to have a full time Of Counsel, then we can work on a project-by-project basis to help you represent your client's interests: we can either be silent behind-the-scenes, so that you appear to be a retirement expert to your client, or we can meet directly with your client to again, make you look good.
