Contentious Trusts Circle

25 April 2024 to 26 April 2024
Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club, UK

Contentious Trust Circle is an exclusive TL4 Circle event and is by invitation only. Entering its 3rd year the event is chaired by Natasha Stourton of Withers, Tom Dumont KC of Radcliffe Chambers, Monika Byrska of Howard Kennedy, and Kelly Watson of Accuro.

This exclusive invitation only event, involves facilitated discussions across 1 and a half days of content.

We have been working with a charing commitee the event to come up with the invite list and areas of discussion. Designed to be interactive and as inclusive as possible, there are no set-piece presentations or panel sessions with the focus being on open discussion.

The event will run in 2 broad formats: Horseshoe & Interactive roundtables, whereby we are expecting all attendees to be involved throughout. There will be assigned topic leaders for each session to get the conversation amongst all attendees started.

Given the format this is very much fluid, and we are keen to take suggestions from attendees up until the event itself as to what you would like to have covered.
