Workshop –

Working with the forensic accountant and dealing with dissipation, evasion and third party rights

Bristol - May 23rd - 2pm - 5.30pm

Leeds - June 27th - 2pm - 5.30pm

Presented by

Jeffrey Nedas, Jeffrey Nedas & Co

Nicholas Trompeter, Selborne Chambers

“The Family Division applies precisely the same principles, and in precisely the same way, as the Chancery Division, or for that matter the Queen’s Bench Division …” So said Munby J in Whig v Whig.

This interactive workshop session will consider some of those principles, in particular, relating to freezing injunctions, proprietary injunctions, and third-party property rights. These often crucial facets of financial remedy proceedings may have a significant bearing on the availability of assets for distribution at the end of the day.

We will consider the following sorts of issues:

-      What is the difference between a freezing injunction and a

       proprietary injunction? Does it matter?

-      On what basis can you apply for such an injunction?

-      How can you resist or set aside a freezing or proprietary injunction?

-     What do you do if you suspect a spouse has entered into a sham or

      some other questionable or unlawful transaction to avoid his (or her)

      financial obligations?

-     How (if at all) do you take into account third party rights over

      matrimonial assets?
