Trusts in Litigation Conference 2020

The Concept
The Concept

ConTrA (the network for Contentious Trusts Association) teamed up with Informa Connect to deliver a new, fresh look at the world of trusts in litigation. 

This conference proudly supported the future leading lights in Trust Litigation with a new and exciting speaker line up focusing on the next generation of Partners and new and future QCs. Whilst maintaining a mix of senior speakers and delegates, the rising stars of the industry are being given a platform to speak and an opportunity to network in the plentiful social activities on offer. 

Our 2020 Conference aims to build on this concept and maintain a high degree of interaction between the varying levels of advisors present.

What we will cover in 2020
What we will cover in 2020

Trusts are prevalent in many areas of law and issues relating to them can arise in numerous scenarios. This conference discussed contentious trusts proceedings as well as the interaction of trusts with other areas including:

  • Civil Fraud
  • Matrimonial
  • Insolvency
  •  Real Estate

We will pair trust practitioners with experts in these fields for unique and enlightening discussions. 

The 2020 conference will continue to bring advisors from different industry areas together to debate the areas in which they cross with trust practitioners.

The Concept

The aim of the conference was to create an affordable event which offers a new speaker line up, supporting both the new generation of partners and QCs, as well as having the usual mix of senior partners and advisers. Very few, if any, conferences engage the junior partners and Associates and we believe it is essential to both support and develop this demographic as they both have a huge say in the way litigation is progressed as well as ensuring good relationships are maintained and created early on in an individual’s personal career journey. 

Hopefully after attending Iceland - you will agree with us that this mix worked very effectively.

The conference will cover Trust litigation as well as taking a wider view of where trusts interact with other areas, such as civil fraud, insolvency, real estate and matrimonial work. This will allow attendees to mix with both trust litigators and a range of different other specialists.

The conference format was not only informative and interactive but fun, partly because of the mix of varying levels of solicitors and counsel who attended
