Partner Josh Rubenstein Comments on Inheritance Rights of Posthumously Conceived Children in The New York Times

Firm News | September 3, 2013

Josh Rubenstein, national head of the Trusts and Estates practice, spoke with The New York Times on the issue of setting up a trust for children conceived posthumously. The number of children conceived through in vitro fertilization has doubled over the last decade, raising concerns over who will inherit assets when the conception occurs after the death of a parent. Josh has pressed clients to consider this issue for years, and counsels people that having the right to use genetic material for a child is not the same as having the right to inherit as if the deceased spouse were still alive. “Fertility Treatments Produce Heirs Their Parents Never Knew,” August 30, 2013)
