The At A Glance Conference is the established and must-attend event for all financial remedy practitioners now in its 4th year.
The conference brings together an unrivalled team of speakers who will tackle the key, current issues, all presented in a uniquely lively day of talks, debate and discussion, making it an unmissable event for those specialising in the field.
As ever the programme reflects the changes that affect financial remedy practitioners at a time when the practice of family law is facing increasing pressure to keep up with modern trends and needs.
Our keynote speaker, Lord Mance, current Deputy President of the Supreme Court, will open the day with his view from the Supreme Court before Rebecca Carew Pole reviews the key finance cases from the past 12 months and what they reveal about current judicial thinking.
Pre and post lunch, two interactive panel sessions will keep you engaged.
Before lunch, a panel of pension lawyers and experts will discuss some difficult issues relating to pensions and divorce and discuss the work of the Pensions Advisory Group.
Following lunch, a second panel will explore the hot topic of dispute resolution centring on the question: which route to choose? Our panel of DR specialists, moderated by Sir Peter Singer, will outline the pros and cons of the options using fictional case studies covering arbitration, mediation and early neutral evaluation.
Later in the afternoon, Brent Molyneux QC will take you through what financial remedy practitioners need to know about company law, including corporate veil, minority oppression and overcoming shareholder rights/agreements when seeking to force transfer of shares.
We then update you on the latest thinking regarding privilege and confidentiality in financial remedy proceedings, before HHJ Edward Hess completes the day with an account of the launch of the new financial remedy court and how they are working.
Of course, all of the above will be enlivened throughout by the incisive promptings of the conference chair, Mr Justice Mostyn, ensuring you will leave enlightened, entertained and enthused.

What delegates said about past At A Glance conferences
I thought the speakers were all engaging and I genuinely thought this was the best Family Law Update course I've been on.
I really enjoyed this conference, and it ended up with me buying a At 'e' Glance. It was a good opportunity to exchange views, hear soundings from other professionals and reflect on the state of the law. Class legal still top of the class.
Overall it was a really interesting conference providing much food for thought. Brilliantly chaired by Mostyn J!
Content was excellent . Felt really engaged with the lectures due to their excellent delivery .
Put simply, this is the stand out 'money work' training event of the year. The consistent high quality of the speakers (and Chairs) and the range of subject matters provide delegates with intellectually stimulating and illuminating insights into the cutting edge of this practice area. Outstanding!
