Trusts in Litigation 2021: Hannah Mantle to speak on Quirks and Curiosities in 1975 Act claims

Contentious Trusts and Estates Senior Associate, Hannah Mantle, has been invited to present a workshop at the upcoming Trusts in Litigation 2021 conference hosted by Informa Connect and ConTrA.

The three day event will focus on the world of trusts in litigation and includes informative panel discussions, interactive workshops and quickfire debates hosted by industry experts.

Hannah will be joined by Giles Richardson (Serle Court) to speak on ‘Quirks and Curiosities in 1975 Act claims' – their session will explore topics including:

  • How should conduct falling within the forfeiture rule be taken into account?
  • What “other matters” may be particularly relevant in determining whether reasonable financial provision has been made?
  • Could matrimonial considerations inform the appropriate remedy, e.g. the terms of a pre- or post-nuptial agreement? Would a claim as a dependant circumvent such an agreement?
  • What are some of the basic tax implications to bear in mind when crafting a remedy?

Ashleigh Carr, Contentious Trusts and Estates Senior Associate, will also be attending the conference; and Forsters is delighted to be sponsoring the event which brings together private client advisors and trust practitioners.

You can register for the conference here. Hannah and Ashleigh look forward to seeing you there.
