As part of Alternative Family Week, GWN are hosting an event to equip you with all you should know about protecting your assets, estate planning and the legal implications of marriage and having a family.

Many people are still unaware that there is no such thing as a ‘common law’ marriage, and the financial and legal implications of living together and jointly owning property are widely misunderstood.

Our panel of experts will answer your questions to help you navigate the legal minefield in relation to LGBT families.

Panellists include:
· Caroline Kelly – Associate, Family Department, Mishcon de Reya
· Victoria Sara-Kennedy – Associate, Private Department, Mishcon de Reya
· Gavin Shaw – Senior Manager, Private Client, KPMG
· Steven Wardlaw – Chairman, Emerald Life
