Come to our seminar on protecting family wealth: 13 November 2014, London

23 October 2014

We’re often asked about the current state of play with UK pre-nups and, as a wealth lawyer, I’m always interested to know how bullet-proof trusts are, should a beneficiary divorce, and whether there are any alternatives to trusts that might offer better protection.

So I’ve teamed up with my colleague Teresa Cullen, our family partner, and we’ll be exploring exactly these issues in our seminar here at Fladgate, 16 Great Queen Street, London WC2B, on 13 November 2014.

Further details below.  If you’d like to join us, please RSVP to register your interest.

Keeping it in the family: tips for protecting family wealth
Thursday 13 November 2014

According to the Office for National Statistics, 42% of marriages in England end in divorce. England is well known for being the divorce capital of the world and one of the most generous jurisdictions in which to divorce, for the poorer party. No wonder therefore that asset protection is a growing concern for engaged couples, married couples and families wanting to pass on assets to the next generation.

As families’ financial affairs become ever more intertwined it is as important for parents as for those with trustee responsibilities to take an interest in their children’s relationship planning. This seminar, presented by family partner Teresa Cullen and private capital partner Helena Luckhurst, will bring you up to date with the current state of the law and provide you with practical guidance to help you navigate these choppy waters. The seminar will answer the following questions:

  • What are pre-nups, post-nups and no-nups?
  • How effective are “nups” in protecting wealth?
  • Are trusts an effective alternative to “nups”?
  • What other asset protection structures are available for families wanting to protect wealth?
