Estate Trustee During Litigation: Advocating for the implementation of your long-term goals
Where estate litigation is ongoing and likely to take some time to determine estate assets, an Estate Trustee During Litigation (EDTL) acts as a neutral and independent third-party executor. The ETDL’s role is to act as an intermediary to facilitate discussion amongst opposing parties in order to effect a settlement or a way forward in a cost-effective manner and manage assets during the litigation process.
Zeifmans professionals have many years of experience acting in court appointments. Unlike institutional trustees, Zeifmans position as a full-service professional firm means that our ETDL clients also receive the benefit of our skilled resources in tax, mergers and acquisitions, valuations, and accounting.
We endeavor to act in a professional and impartial manner, serving the interest of all parties involved and their counsel. Our reputation with the court and counsel is based on those principles.
The ETDL team can assist you by:
Determining the value of the estate’s assets and liabilities.
Protecting, safeguarding, and uncovering the estate’s assets, including those discovered to be missing.
Investing the estate’s funds to maximize realizations until the ETDL’s discharge.
Ascertaining, defending, settling, and paying any debts.
