A decedent’s estates or trust often come with “baggage,” which a professional fiduciary has to clean up. Challenges coming with an estate or trust often include third party creditors’ claims and community property disputes between the decedent and the surviving spouse. The speaker, Lynda Chung, will discuss real life cases and offer practical tips on how to handle them.
An energetic litigator, Lynda I. Chung specializes in trust and estate and business disputes.
Lynda helps her clients through what is often the most emotionally and financially trying time in their lives. Whether being taken advantage of by a trustee or a managing member of the client’s company (often the client’s own family member), she works hard to resolve the matter to her client’s benefit.
Notable results that Lynda and her colleagues have delivered include:
• A $23M surcharge judgment against an unfaithful trustee (client’s half-brother), including double and punitive damages;
• A $500K Right To Attach Order against the client’s former consultant, who allegedly made secret profits in connection with a luxury home project outside of Moscow;
• A $7M Right To Attach Order in an adversarial proceeding in the Bankruptcy Court against a debtor who orchestrated a fraudulent bankruptcy scheme and diverted corporate assets to foreign bank accounts.
Trust and estate litigation matters that Lynda handles include financial elder abuse by caregivers or family members, will and trust contests, disputes over settlors’ capacity, undue influence, fiduciary accounting, and conservatorships.
Lynda also represents clients in a wide range of business litigation matters, large or small, domestic or global, in real property, construction and import/export industries. Lynda takes pride in locating “hidden” assets when she represents creditors.
