As every family law solicitor will know, financial remedy applications involving intervenors can be complicated, expensive, and slow to progress through the courts. But help is not far away.

This new virtual classroom seminar presented by Greg Williams of Coram Chambers, is designed to provide you with the key issues that are likely to arise in an intervenor’s claim and provide you with sufficient detail to help advise the applicant or the respondent or the third party as the case may be.

This live session will include a case study as a working example, together with top tips for directions orders and joinder; key case law to watch out for, particularly in relation to trusts of land concerning the ‘Bank of Mum and Dad’ or other relatives, and a section on costs in family finance cases.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • The ‘Bank of Mum and Dad’ (or other family members)
  • The principle of interventions in financial remedy claims
  • On whom does the duty lie to join an intervenor, and when?
  • Top tips for directions orders relating to the joinder of intervenors
  • What is a trial of a preliminary issue and how do I win one/defend against one?
  • The fundamentals of ToLATA: constructive and resulting trusts in intervenor cases
  • Other related issues: deeds of trust; escaping deeds of trust; mortgage issues and the equity of exoneration
  • Costs consequences in intervenors' claims
