26th May family seminar information

Relying upon non-financial conduct in financial proceedings can be notoriously difficult.  This seminar explores the ways in which it can be successfully done by looking at the detail of a recent  case that Maria Scotland and Sarah Wood have been involved in.  The client was Sarbjit Athwal, founder and CEO of the charity ‘True Honour’.  The charity was founded following her own personal experience of being the main witness in a murder trial in which her mother-in-law and brother-in-law were convicted of the murder of her sister-in-law.  She is the author of the book ‘Shamed’ about her experience.  The subsequent family proceedings forced her to face her mother-in-law once more as she was named as an intervener in the proceedings.  Nothing about the case was straight-forward but the final result reveals how the Courts can be persuaded to use equitable principles and conduct in reaching a fair and just outcome. 

Do join us to hear more about the fascinating detail of the case and Sarbjit Athwal’s own personal experience.
