I recently had the pleasure of speaking at the 2017 STEP Caribbean Conference. I co-presented with Cayman Islands trust litigator Rachael Reynolds. We had fun going through the practical “what ifs” a Caribbean trustee should consider if faced with the prospect of getting pulled into a Florida courtroom.

The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners or “STEP” is a global organization of international trust and estate lawyers, bankers, accountants and other professionals that originated in the UK, which explains why STEP isn’t nearly as well known in the US as it should be. If your practice involves international trust and estate matters, you need to be in STEP (I’m a member of STEP’s Miami Branch).
