The Guildhall Chambers Property and Estates Team will be delivering its autumn seminar in Cardiff on Thursday 8th October 2015 at St David’s Hotel, Cardiff. The seminar will concentrate on recent key developments in contentious probate matters and inheritance disputes.
This specialist seminar will include talks from three speakers. Matthew Brown will deliver a talk on costs in the context of contentious probate claims including, in particular, a consideration of the recent costs decision of the Supreme Court in Marley v Rawlings (No 2)  AC 157. Raj Sahonte will be speaking on gifts made in contemplation of death (donatio mortis causa) following the Court of Appeal’s decision in King v The Chiltern Dog Rescue  EWCA Civ 581. Finally, and in light of Court of Appeal’s recent ruling in Ilott v Mitson  EWCA Civ 797, Tim Walsh will provide some useful guidance on the correct approach to valuing Inheritance Act claims brought by adult children.
