On 10-12 March 2016 Emma Hatley and Richard Hogwood, Partners in our Divorce and Family team, attended and spoke at the 10th Annual Trust & Estate Litigation Forum 2016 run by Legal Week on the subject of ‘Learning from the past, preparing for the future’.

The forum represents a meeting of the most distinguished practitioners in the trust litigation community, bringing them together to share best practice and practical insights, as well as to debate the latest cases and developments.

Emma and Richard delivered a session entitled ‘The Matrimonial Interface’ based on a case study that explored the interface between trusts and divorce, discussing issues which have been dealt with in recent family law judgments. These included variation of ‘nuptial’ settlements, financial claims following an overseas divorce and putting marital agreements under the microscope. Cases examined included: Gray v Work, Hopkins v Hopkins, Quan v Bray and Joy v Joy.

Emma Hatley and Richard Hogwood said:

“We were delighted to be invited to speak at the Trust & Estates Litigation Forum in Provence last week.

We were very pleased with the feedback from participants in our interactive session, one even describing it as ‘a masterclass’. “
