WeirFoulds Estate Alert Live – Webcast – Contentious Multi-jurisdictional Estates: Dealing with Assets in the Caribbean & International Financial Centres
Please join Nadia Chiesa, Co-Chair, Caribbean Practice Group and Kayla Theeuwen, Associate, Caribbean Practice Group, for WeirFoulds’ first ever Estate Alert Live webcast. Estate Alert Live will feature critical insights on current topics and trends in estate law.
The first webcast is “Contentious Multi-jurisdictional Estates: Dealing with Assets in the Caribbean & International Financial Centres”.
When litigating a contentious estate in Canada, it’s not unusual to find that the estate has foreign assets: a bank account in the deceased’s native country, a holiday home on the shores of a sunny Caribbean island, or a foreign trust set up in an international financial center. Dealing with these foreign assets may require Ontario-based practitioners to navigate the laws and court systems of multiple jurisdictions, and can raise a wide range of issues including a conflict of laws, or the need to consider compliance with anti-corruption and anti-money laundering legislation. It can be difficult to figure out where to start and how to find the legal assistance that your clients may need in a foreign jurisdiction.
The WeirFoulds Caribbean Practice Group has extensive experience dealing with contentious trusts and estates matters across the Commonwealth Caribbean. Please join us for a discussion about the challenges of litigating multi-jurisdiction estates, and some practical tips to help you get started.
