Emily Plocki, counsel in Venable’s Tax and Wealth Planning Practice, was selected to participate in the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) Foundation’s Dennis I. Belcher Young Leaders Program as a member of the 2020-2022 class.
This prestigious program was designed to foster scholarship and education in trust and estate matters, promote diversity and inclusivity, and encourage the development of potential ACTEC Fellows. Initiated in collaboration with the American Bar Association Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section (RPTE) Fellows program, it provides successful graduates of the two-year RPTE program an opportunity to extend their participation in RPTE leadership activities through the financial support of the ACTEC Foundation.
The program provides lawyers with an in-depth introduction to ACTEC and its role in the trust and estate community, and encourages active engagement in responsibilities that support future eligibility for nomination as an ACTEC Fellow. Young leaders are offered tuition-free attendance at the ACTEC-ALI/CLE webinars and financial support to attend ABA/RPTE Section Meetings, and are invited to attend regional and state ACTEC events.
Ms. Plocki assists high-net-worth individuals, multigenerational families, and owners of family corporations, both domestically and internationally, with tax planning and wealth preservation. She handles a variety of matters, including estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer tax planning; trust and estate administration; planned charitable giving; and business succession strategies. She prepares sophisticated lifetime and estate planning documents, designed to help families and individuals preserve and grow the businesses and legacies they have built over a lifetime.
