Q) What is your key area of practice?

A) I’m an associate in our Trust, Estate and Inheritance Disputes team. We also cover Court of Protection work alongside our non-contentious elder law specialists. I am one year qualified so my practice is still pretty broad – I would say roughly half my clients are charities looking to defend probate or inheritance claims, and the rest are a mix of private individuals and trustees/executors

TL4 & ConTrA Summary | Private Client Summer School 2021

On Thursday 26th August 2021, we opened the doors to our first in-person event at ThoughtLeaders4 by kicking it off with Private Client Summer School: The Ultimate Insider’s Guide. For most delegates, this was the first event they had attended in over 18 months. For everyone in attendance at the summer school, there was a real sense of novelty to be back in the room where delegates were able to move freely, catch up, and begin to plant the seeds into relationships that will likely grow as they do in the industry.

Knowledge BVI trust legislation enhanced by Trustee (Amendment) Act 2021

The Trustee (Amendment) Act 2021 (the "Amendment") came into force on 13 May 2021 and greatly enhances BVI's trusts legislation.

The Amendment inserts a new section 58B to the Trustee Act, expanding the court's jurisdiction to vary, add to, revoke or replace any provision of a trust. It builds on existing rules that allow the court to approve, on behalf of minor and unborn beneficiaries and other persons who are unable to approve themselves, arrangements that amend trusts.
