Peter Shapland in the Boston Business Journal: "Troubled Economy Boosts Lawyers' Estate Work"

Publisher: Boston Business Journal

The slumping economy and the temporary lift of what's known as the death tax have added an extra layer of urgency for many people to draft ironclad wills.

Add to those circumstances the fact that death remains a steady event that requires legal attention, and the result has been a busy year for estate planning attorneys.

Indeed, for the most part, trusts and estate practices have been largely "recession resistant," said Peter Shapland, a partner in the individual client department of Day Pitney LLP in Boston and co-chair of the Boston Bar Association's Trusts & Estate's section. "It's been a good way to keep working."
