The estate planning and succession conference will give delegates an overview of key developments and opportunity to discuss thoughts and ideas in the ‘private client’ space.
Chaired by Alan Eccles, the event will have a genuinely inter-disciplinary feel with speakers from law (such as Roddy Harrison of BTO and Norman Kennedy of Brodies) as well as accountancy and financial planning and advice (Douglas McCrea and Jonathan Campbell of McCrea Financial Services).
The topics covered will go beyond advice for elderly clients and look proactively at the situations where the private client practitioner can add real value such as on philanthropy and charities, family business succession and stewardship, tax mitigation and inter-generational planning.
