Julian Zebot Interviewed for WCCO-TV Segment on an Estate Litigation Matter

September 28, 2015

Julian Zebot, partner in Maslon's Litigation Group, was interviewed for a WCCO-TV segment titled, "Missing A Signature, Minneapolis Man's Last Will Invalidated." The report shares that although a Minnesota man had a personally-signed and notarized hand-written will on his body at the time of his death, it was not valid as it was missing the second of two witness signatures required by Minnesota law. "Without any children, living parents, or siblings," the segment notes, "the law states [the man's] possessions of around a half-million dollars pass to his nieces."

The report emphasizes that although thinking about end of life planning is tough, it's better than learning "the hard way how important it is to do it the right way." Julian adds that "there's a lot of misinformation and misconceptions floating around" regarding what constitutes a valid will under Minnesota law.

Julian focuses his practice on fiduciary and trust litigation as well as commercial litigation involving claims of unfair business competition, including lawsuits involving sales representatives and sales practices. He has broad litigation experience involving fiduciary duties, trusts, probate, business torts, the Minnesota Termination of Sales Representatives Act ("MTSRA"), Lanham Act claims, class actions, and other complex commercial litigation, including litigation involving banks, other financial service businesses, manufacturers and companies with sales forces, and closely held companies.
