Firm News (Newsletters):
  • During September, 2022 the Biden administration released the Comprehensive Framework for Responsible  Development of Digital Assets (“Framework”). Digital Assets refer to cryptocurrencies, cryptokens, Non-Fungible Tokens (“NFTs”), products built on blockchains, and others. Their goals are to provide consumer and investorprotection; financial stability; counter illicit finance; U.S. leadership in the global financial system and economic competitiveness; financial inclusion; and responsible innovation. This Framework addressed various issues, however this article will focus only on stablecoins, the environmental impact of blockchain technology, fighting illicit finance, and the implementation of a U.S. Central Bank Digital Currency and Central Bank Digital Currencies (“CBDCs”). , Regulation of Digital Assets and Crypto Currencies, Finance, Tax
  • We are finding an increasing number of clients with digital assets on their balance sheets and, as such, we are  investing our time, effort, and money learning about these new forms of property and other uses of blockchain. As property, some forms of digital assets are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission and digital assets are considered capital assets by the Internal Revenue Services for tax purposes. As property, they can also be held in trusts and conveyed to others, perhaps by a blockchain trust or will. Blockchain is not only used to create assets, but is used as a medium of contract, payment, and other processes. , Blocks of Digital Assets - Bitcoin, Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT’s), and Property -, Finance, Tax

Scholarly Lectures/Writings:
  • Broadly, this paper addresses the ways trusts are modified and the effect of the generation skipping tax (“GST”). Narrowly, it focuses on the limitations associated with modifying trusts that are grandfathered from GST under Chapter 13, but its conclusions can extend to trusts exempt as a result of GST exemption allocation. Though much is written about modifying trusts through “decantings,” the conclusion of the author is that in certain situations a trustee’s ability to appoint or grant powers of appointment to beneficiaries offers a simpler and often safer meansof modifying trusts, without violating the constructive addition or other limitations that jeopardize grandfathered status or loss of exemption that has been allocated or that can be allocated in the future., Author, TRUSTEE GRANT OF POWER - A SIMPLER APPROACH TO MODIFYING GST EXEMPT TRUSTS –, 2016
