ALA South West

Tuesday 29 October 2019

The ALA South West Group will be holding an Autumn Seminar on Tuesday, 29 October with St Johns Chambers and Old Mill at the offices of Stephens Scown, Osprey House, Malpas Road, Truro.

Our Speakers and Topics are:

Farms, Promises and Half Truths

Leslie Blohm QC and Christopher Jones, Barristers, St John’s Chambers

Leslie and Christopher will deliver a lecture on informal agreements and partnership assets in a farming context. The talk will look at the recent cases of Wild v Wild [2018] EWHC 2197 and Ham v Bell [2016] EWHC 1791 and consider what lessons can be drawn from those judgments and applied by the busy practitioner.

Following Leslie and Christopher’s lecture, delegates will be given a case study containing a scenario and series of questions for discussion and debate!

Partnership Disputes – An Accountant’s Approach

Mark Shelton, Consultant, Old Mill

Mark will discuss the accountancy aspects of these two cases and will consider the role of the accountant in avoiding similar disputes. In particular he will look at how partnership property, and a partner’s entitlement to partnership assets might be reflected in the accounts.

Members and Non-Members are welcome to attend.

A booking form will be published here in mid August.

Time : 5.15pm to 9pm

Cost : £20 per person (incl. VAT)
