Since qualifying as a private client solicitor, I have been fortunate enough to develop my practice area and client base - with the guidance and support of my colleagues at Goodman Derrick - in the private wealth and probate spheres.
Something that I have consequentially fostered a real interest for is the blended family; I have spent quite some time over recent months getting to grips with how this interacts with inheritance tax, private wealth and general estate planning.
I was therefore delighted to be asked by Intelligent Partnership to speak on the topic of modern blended families with my brilliant colleague Charlotte Coyle, a senior associate in the firm's family team, at #INTERGEN2020 - the largest and most diverse conference happening in financial services this year.
During our fireside chat, Charlotte and I will discuss the ins and outs of blended families and the financial arrangements that may follow - from pre-nuptial agreements, to planning for spendthrift children, to leaving all or part of your estate to second spouses and/or stepchildren (and some of the possible pitfalls).
We would love for you to hear us speak on the topic: secure your place at Intergen 2020, commencing 30 November, by clicking on this link now.
Key themes to be discussed will include: legalities and realities of estate planning advice for blended families financial and emotional considerations and implications perceptions on money, spending, saving and investing for different generations
