Ian Bond and Mark Hands, both of Irwin Mitchell, will discuss:

  2. Trusts in the context of divorce – they will discuss how are they treated, what obligations are placed on trustees and what protection do they afford? They will also explore drafting issues for private client lawyers
  3. The roll of pre-nuptial (and post-nuptial) agreements in wealth planning – working with matrimonial lawyers in the best interests of clients.
  4. Gender issues for private client lawyers – in relation to wills, LPAs and the impact on existing marriages/civil partnerships as well as the position of a beneficiary or executor changing gender.
