Protective Proceedings and New Tools Help Financial Professionals: two SYK attorneys contribute to the OSB Elder Law Newsletter.
The January 2019, Volume 22 issue of the OSB Elder Law Newsletter featured articles by two of SYK’s outstanding attorneys. Laura Nelson, whose practice includes estate planning, trust administration, and guardianship and conservatorship cases was featured on the first page of the newsletter. Her article, co-authored by Rachel Brooks, Protective Proceedings: A Sister (State) Act, examines the differences between the way in which Oregon and Washington handle cases involving protected persons.
SYK attorney Darlene Pasieczny’s article, New Tools Help Financial Professionals Prevent Elder Abuse, examines mandatory and permissive conduct for Oregon securities professionals when there is reasonable suspicion of financial abuse. Pasieczny is a fiduciary and securities litigator. She represents clients in both Oregon and Washington in trust and estate disputes, elder financial abuse, securities litigation, and investors nationwide in FINRA arbitration.
