Six Figure Settlement in Asset Concealment Case

A bank permitted the attorney-in-fact (AIF) for a wealthy customer change the beneficiary designations on his bank accounts with a power of attorney (POA), such that the AIF would receive the proceeds of the account upon the death of the customer. However, the POA did not permit the AIF to change bank account beneficiary designations, so we filed suit against the bank for concealing assets that would otherwise have gone to the customer’s estate.
The probate litigation attorneys at Tittle & Perlmuter held the bank accountable for failing to protect its customer’s assets, settling the claim in the six-figures.
