Island advocate at major gathering in Girona

DQ Director speaker at Trust and Estates Litigation Forum

An Island advocate has played an important role at a forum for the world's leading trust and estate practitioners.

Annemarie Hughes, a director with DQ Advocates, was one of the speakers at the Trust and Estates Litigation Forum in Girona, Spain.

The conference is considered the most senior gathering for trust and estates professionals to debate recent contentious trust proceedings from across the globe.

Annemarie, who heads up DQ’s trusts, pensions and private client team, was a panel speaker on the question of when it is appropriate for trustees and personal representatives to seek court sanction.

The focus of the sessions included developments in trustee liability, cryptocurrency and other digital assets, enforcement of judgments post-Brexit and the impact of challenges to legal professional privilege.
