The Steering Committee welcomes 48 estate planning and litigation professionals from leading law firms across Canada to meet and discuss the most pressing issues in planning and litigation facing their clients today.
A select few gerontologists join the discussion to provide first-hand information of capacity-related considerations for clients. Using candid, seminar-style discussions at this annual meeting, the group examines, amongst other things, capacity assessments of aging clients, vulnerability and new developments in case law.
This elite group, comprised of experts in the field, personally nominates all invitees and develops the Agenda, which forms the basis of our discussions.
