Rory Carter to speak on Digital Assets for The Law Society

Contentious Trusts and Estates Senior Associate, Rory Carter, has been invited to speak in The Law Society’s webinar ‘Back to basics on Digital Assets’.

The session will be split into three key areas:

  1. Digital assets: what are the solicitor’s responsibilities? What do solicitors need to advise clients / executors? Our speakers will also discuss the risks associated with holding digital assets for executors and the valuation of assets when reporting to probate.
  2. Crypto as a property asset: what to do if there is a potential hacking and making sure you get the crypto from the client to the executors when a person has died.
  3. Law Commission’s report: recommendations for reform and development of the law relating to digital assets and next steps.

Rory will be joining fellow speakers, Elizabeth Gibbison of Irwin Mitchell LLP, Stephen Moses of Zenplans, Leigh Sagar of New Square Chambers and Akber Datoo of D2 Legal Technology.
