About the seminar
Are you a private client practitioner grappling with disputes alongside your litigation peers? Maybe you're a litigator intrigued by the intricacies of private client matters. Or you could be an all-encompassing general practitioner managing a bit of everything. Whatever your role, our online workshop is finely tuned to cater for you, and your clients' needs.
Join us for an insightful journey into the world of contentious trusts and estates. Through an immersive exploration of a real-life case study, we'll traverse a landscape that encompasses legal rights, cohabitant claims on death, court remedies, solicitor's duties, and the intricate dance that is conflicts of interest. Your active participation is encouraged but rest assured, at least some solutions will be provided and other Brodies team members as required to facilitate discussion! This workshop isn't just theoretical; it's a practical toolkit crafted to empower both you and your clients.
Elevate your professional expertise with high-quality CPD at an affordable price.
