Description

Event Focus

Although the crypto-asset phenomenon is relatively young and still largely experimental, tokens such as bitcoin do exist and have value. They are owned by individuals who hold them as investments or use them in transactions. This must be taken into account in the planning and administration of their estates and the modern private client practitioner should therefore be aware of the operation and nature of crypto-assets.

Why Attend?

Practitioners involved in estate planning, estate administration and providing transactional advice should attend this important event so that they can understand the processes involved with crypto-assets and effectively advise on and deal with them, including:

  • transferring them;
  • using them as security for loans;
  • their administration as part of the estate of a deceased person and of a trust fund.

Speakers

  • The Rt. Hon. Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury, One Essex Court and Former President, Supreme Court of the United Kingdom
  • Leigh Sagar TEP, Barrister, New Square Chambers and Chair, STEP Digital Assets Special Interest Group
  • James Brockhurst TEP, Senior Associate, Forsters LLP
