Level 5, 160 St Georges Terrace Perth
This seminar brings together counsel for the executor in Lemon v Mead, WA’s highest profile succession case of 2017, to discuss what constitutes adequate provision for the proper maintenance of a billionaire’s secret offspring? For more modest estates, the seminar looks at how to deal with assets outside of the will such as jointly owned real property and superannuation? Finally, for centuries in England, limited and special grants of administration have been made by Courts exercising probate jurisdiction in circumstances where a general or unlimited grant of probate or administration was not appropriate. The seminar explores these ancient and well-established grants available to applicants in various circumstances, and considers recent Australian cases which have dealt with these limited grants.
Afternoon tea will be provided.
