The Steering Committee welcomes up to 48 leading tax, estate planning and estate litigation professionals from prominent law and accounting firms across Canada. This 2nd Generation Forum is part of the Cambridge Forums ‘Estates & Trusts’ series. It is geared towards practitioners that have between 15 – 24 years of experience in this field.
Using candid, seminar-style discussion at this annual meeting, the group examines trends and developments in every jurisdiction and engages in meaningful dialogue on the most pressing issues facing their clients today.
This elite group, comprised of experts in the field, personally nominates all invitees and develops the Agenda, which forms the basis of our discussions.
