Trusts and Relationship Property for Family Lawyers

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
