(LITTLE ROCK, Ark.) — The Board of Regents of The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) announced that Attorney Ashley Gill has been elected as a Fellow at the College’s 2023 Fall Meeting in Louisville last week.
With an active practice in trust and estate law, Ashley regularly counsels clients on wealth transfer strategies, including income, estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer tax, asset protection, business succession, and charitable planning to structure plans that both minimize estate shrinkage and maximize the achievement of non-tax goals. She also provides general business and tax advice to both publicly-held and privately-held companies in connection with mergers and acquisitions, corporation reorganizations, stock restructurings, company dispositions, and employee compensation plans designed to promote efficiency and employee productivity. Ashley is a graduate of the ACTEC Heart of America Fellows Institute.
To qualify for ACTEC membership, a lawyer must have at least ten years of experience in the active practice of trust and estate law, as fiduciary counsel with a fiduciary services company, or a combination thereof, or be a full-time teacher of law at a duly accredited law school, specialize in teaching trust and estate law, and have at least ten years cumulative experience as a lawyer in active private trust and estate practice or as a teacher of trust and estate law, or a combination thereof. Lawyers and law professors are elected to be Fellows based on their outstanding reputation, exceptional skill, and substantial contributions to the field by lecturing, writing, teaching and participating in bar leadership or legislative activities. It is their aim to improve and reform probate, trust and tax laws, procedures, and professional responsibility.
