Professionals love to chat informally with the experts in their field, something that’s been challenging during the pandemic.  For the first time ever, TVEd is proud to offer our loyal clients an opportunity to do just that – through our new Online Fireside Chats.

This isn’t a webinar and it’s not chalk and talk.  It’s a one hour conversation between one of the most respected experts in their chosen field and another expert in the same field.  Each discussion is planned by the two experts and covers an agreed range of issues we’ll share with you.

In this fireside chat Andrew Verspaandonk interviews Carolyn Sparke QC and they examine the latest and greatest cases dealing with family provision claims and the key lessons succession lawyers can learn from them.

Topics covered include:

  • Estrangement issues
  • Dealing with step children and former spouses
  • Establishing financial need
  • Lessons from recent cases
