Law firm Mourant Ozannes expects 150 trust and private wealth specialists from Cayman, the U.K. and the U.S. at its annual trust and private client event at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman on Oct. 7.
The lineup of speakers is chaired by Shan Warnock-Smith QC ICT Chambers (Cayman Islands) and 5 Stone Buildings (London) and Mourant Ozannes Global Head of International Private Client and Trust Jim Edmondson.
This year’s theme is “Shifting Sands – the shocks and aftershocks affecting the trust and wealth management business in 2016 and beyond.” Mourant Ozannes lawyers and speakers will discuss key issues for trusts and trustees in relation to transparency, information exchange and registers of ownership, insolvent trusts, resolution of trust disputes and disclosure of trust information.
Jim Edmondson, Global Head of Mourant Ozannes’ International Private Client and Trust practice, said the conference “has become a key event in the private client and trust world as it brings together leading specialists to debate key issues affecting the industry …. This year’s conference will be covering some key issues for trustees and their advisers. It promises to give attendees some real food for thought as well as practical direction to take back to their own organizations.”
The event is sponsored by Northern Trust and Smith & Williamson.
Jeff Millington, tax investigations partner at Smith & Williamson, said: “We look forward to speaking to delegates about important proposed changes to U.K. tax legislation, some of which are the subject of a very recent U.K. government consultation document.”
