David’s presentation at the May meeting will focus specifically on domestic asset protection, privacy, and powerful control mechanisms under South Dakota law such as the directed trust, trust protector, family advisor, and decanting that make South Dakota such a desirable U.S. trust jurisdiction for international families coming to the United States from around the world.
