Susan Link Appointed to Serve as Trustee and Treasurer of the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis

January 6, 2022

Susan Link, a partner in Maslon's Estate Planning Group, has been elected to serve as trustee and treasurer of the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis. Drawing from her service as a board member from 2012 to 2018, Susan will advise in the governance and strategic direction of the parish. Her two-year term began Dec. 1, 2021.

To learn more about the Basilica's work, go to: The Basilica of St. Mary.

Susan practices in the areas of estate planning, probate, and trust administration. She works closely with families to plan the disposition of their assets, both during lifetime and at death, and to accomplish the optimal estate and gift tax planning for clients through wills, trusts, and other instruments. Susan routinely drafts estate plans that include estate tax and generation-skipping tax planning, in addition to drafting and implementing irrevocable trusts, charitable trusts, qualified personal residence trusts, minors' trusts, antenuptial agreements, and postnuptial agreements. She is regularly involved in the analysis and issues of lifetime gifting programs, estate tax planning, and generation-skipping issues.

Susan also works with families after the death of a family member to ensure that the client's wishes are achieved and that the plan they created is carried out. If appropriate, Susan also advises estate and trust beneficiaries during administration in order to maximize their own planning options relative to their share of a decedent's estate through the use of disclaimers and powers of appointment.

In addition, Susan currently serves as the program director of Minnesota Wills for Heroes. Sponsored by the Minnesota State Bar Association, the program is designed to provide free legal services for the preparation of basic estate planning documents for Minnesota first responders.
