Watson Bonander Attorneys Featured Presenters at Atlanta Bar Association CLE Breakfast

Watson Bonander Attorneys Featured Presenters at Atlanta Bar Association CLE Breakfast

Wade H. Watson III and Laura Kennedy Bonander were featured presenters at the Atlanta Bar Association’s Estate Planning and Probate Section breakfast on Sept. 13, 2017. Their presentation, “The Case for Going to Court: How Declaratory Judgment Actions Can Help Fiduciaries (and Beneficiaries),” argued that declaratory judgment actions should be used to resolve disputes and controversies involving estates, trusts, and closely held businesses because they provide the fiduciary with direction from the court and protection from liability for following that direction. Watson reviewed the governing law and Bonander explained the practical benefits of declaratory judgment actions, giving examples of their use in various situations. The breakfast was part of the Atlanta Bar Association’s continuing legal education series.
