Their events focus on cutting-edge legal education and management training, as well as other vital updates in estate, tax, and business planning laws. “The Spring Summit was an opportunity for us to reflect on generational differences and acknowledge each other’s strengths and how this creates dynamic teams. When we focus on what is possible versus what is wrong, we are able to create a space that has far reaching effects for not only for ourselves but also for our teams and the families we serve,” said Sanford M. Fisch, CEO and co-founder of the American Academy.
The conference began with a keynote address titled, “Crossing the Generational Divide: Unlocking the Power of Generations,” from speaker Curt Steinhorst from the Center for Generational Kinetics.

The visionary approach, education, systems and resources that the firm receives from the American Academy and these events makes it possible for us to focus on why we do what we do, help families leave lasting legacies to their loved ones.
