Michael Sampson to Serve on a Panel for Minnesota State Bar Association Webcast on Serving Estate Planning Clients in the Midst of COVID-19

April 10, 2020

Michael Sampson, Chair of Maslon's Estate Planning Group, will serve on a panel for the Minnesota State Bar Association's "Serving Estate Planning Clients in the Midst of COVID-19" webcast on April 10, 2020. Trust and estate practitioners are navigating shifting realities with the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic. The panel of experienced attorneys will discuss ways to evaluate risk and steer clients (and ourselves) through the challenges trust and estate practitioners are facing in everything from document signing and notarization to taxes and navigating the courts in this extraordinary time.

Michael’s legal practice focuses on high-end estate and tax planning, estate and trust administration, charitable planning, and business succession planning. Michael helps his clients focus on what it is they really want to accomplish with their wealth. After assisting his clients in identifying their specific wealth planning goals, Michael works with them and their other professional advisors to develop and implement wealth transfer strategies that are consistent not only with their goals, but also with their cash flow needs and tolerance for risk.

Michael is a Fellow of The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel and has also been recognized as a Notable Practitioner in Minnesota for Private Wealth Law in the 2018-2019 editions of the Chambers High Net Worth (HNW) guide. He is a frequent speaker at continuing legal education seminars and has served as an adjunct professor at Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul. Michael serves as the chair of Maslon's Estate Planning Group and is also very active in the Minnesota State Bar Association, currently serving as Treasurer of the Probate and Trust Law Section Council and as a past chair of the Section's Legislation Committee.
