Claims against charity legacies in England & Wales, and overseas

Far from being ‘yet another 1975 Act claim tutorial’, our Legacy Team webinar, focuses on the key issue of recoverability of success fees in 1975 Act claims, and how Claimants who instruct legal representatives on contingency fee agreements may affect the quantum of their claim. The webinar also considers how legacy officers should deal with overseas claims (or claims against overseas assets) and what steps can be taken to mitigate the effect of overseas claims. This is suitable for charity legacy officers; education administrators and other personnel dealing with legacies left to their institution.
