Director, Gretchen Barkhuizen-Barbosa and Associate, Emily West from our Trusts and Estates practice presented on a range of topics including factors and implications to consider when drafting a will, marital property regimes, estate structures, tax implications, and the administration processes of deceased estates. Our experts also dealt, in great detail, with the concept of a family home, its ownership and how to bequeath it.
Our Trusts & Estates practice emphasised the importance of drawing up a will along with proper estate planning. The workshop aimed to empower and encourage the attendees to take steps to protect their estates to preserve them for the long-term benefit of their families and communities.
The eagerness of the attendees, their engagement throughout the programme and the overwhelmingly positive feedback all signalled the workshop’s success.
The workshop forms part of an ongoing initiative by our Pro Bono & Human Rights practice to provide meaningful opportunities for all the firm’s lawyers to share their knowledge and know-how with communities in order to promote community development and access to information for all.
Thank you to our Trusts & Estates experts for presenting a truly informative and enabling workshop.
