MPTF's Professional Advisory Network (PAN) is for advisors with clients in the entertainment industries. PAN is comprised primarily of estate planning attorneys, entertainment attorneys, CPA's, CFP's, and business and wealth managers.

In creating this group of professionals, MPTF sought to deliver quality educational programs during the quarterly luncheon meetings and to facilitate productive and mutually rewarding relationships among its members. The luncheons are held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills with a featured presentation by leading experts in the fields of estate planning, tax laws, charitable gift planning, intellectual property rights, and other areas of interest. These meetings provide one hour of MCLE and CPA continuing education credit through the generous sponsorship of Loeb & Loeb LLP to attending members and guests.
