Asian Private Wealth: Dispute Resolution & Succession Planning Summit

Tuesday, January 29 to Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay Hotel, Singapore
Between an ageing population and a notorious lack of succession planning, SE Asia has become a hotbed of trust, probate and divorce disputes amongst families who have previously used informal relationships to govern the handover of assets. With a trend towards increasingly complex and high value trusts with international dimensions, a boom in litigation surrounding generational wealth transfer is inevitable. Firms are taking notice, with twenty three foreign law firms applying for licenses to practice in Singapore recently.

Further driving this spike in trust-related disputes is the global economic crisis, with trustees being held to greater account by beneficiaries looking for someone to blame when their trust fund is suddenly worth a fraction of what it was a few years ago. There is a greater desire to ask questions of people responsible for managing private wealth and providing related services, and with this comes a myriad of legal challenges and questions that need answering now.

Your clients are anxious to protect their assets during inter-generational family business transfers - are you ready to meet their high expectations? With a strong focus on encouraging delegate participation, the emphasis throughout the conference will be on practical examples and interactive discussion. Come armed with your questions and raise your concerns with our expert speaker faculty, who will share their expertise and real-life experiences to answer your questions and keep you at the forefront of this hot topic.
