In this episode, Senior Editor David Lenok speaks with Jacqueline Bevilaqua, associate at Katsky Korins, about the interesting estate plan of rapper Adam Yauch ( one-third of the Beastie Boys).

  • How to work with strong-willed clients who insist on using their will to make a public statement
  • What to consider when incorporating copyright into a client’s will
  • What it means to help your clients “play the tape through” when they’re appointing guardianship — and why it’s important
  • And more!
