Ravdin and Coventry present Death and Divorce in Prenups to D.C. Bar

Anne Coventry and Linda Ravdin were the faculty for the D.C. Bar Continuing Legal Education program, “Premarital Agreements: Planning for Death and Divorce.” The program included discussion of spousal rights when parties marry without a premarital agreement, the law of validity, conducting the initial consultation with the potential client, conflicts of interest and other ethical issues, ideas for drafting and negotiating the terms, what terms are permissible and what terms are not, important issues to consider in the death scenario and in the divorce scenario, and advice to the client about handling his or her assets during the marriage to achieve the protections afforded by the agreement.
