Vanessa 05-480-802
Trusts and Relationship Property for Family Lawyers
May 2013 (with Isaac Hikaka)
  • This is probably the best booklet I have seen (Trusts and Relationship Property for Family Lawyers, NZLS CLE Ltd, May 2013).  A real handbook that gives the analysis tools for a complex subject that is evolving case by case. 

  • Excellent materials – detailed analysis of recent case law and how this affects practice in this area.  One of the best courses I have been to in some time.  Speakers were easy to listen to and follow. 

  • Entertaining and engaging presentation from two excellent speakers. 

  • Fascinating and very relevant. 

  • A fantastic refresher, a useful motivator to look closer at trusts, and a good clear precis of the options to explore.  I can’t wait to have a case worthy of the skills promoted in this presentation
