1KBW is proud to have recently sponsored the High Net Worth Same Sex Family Going Global conference 2015 in Brighton

1KBW is proud to have recently sponsored the High Net Worth Same Sex Family Going Global conference which was held over 9-11 April 2015 in Brighton. This international law conference, which was organised by the American Bar Association Section of International Law and the Association Internationale des Jeunes Avocats and chaired by Eliza Hebditch of Farrer & Co, was attended by Philip Marshall QC, Anthony Kirk QC, Madeleine Reardon, Laura Moys and Charlotte Hartley.                 

Members of Chambers, together with lawyers from around the globe, congregated to discuss, compare and contrast the legal framework and ramifications for same sex families across multiple jurisdictions with diverse topics ranging from tax and wealth planning for same sex couples to applications for permission to relocate children out of the jurisdiction.

Madeleine Reardon and Anthony Kirk QC were both speakers at this event; Madeleine gave an informative lecture on the law relating to the acquisition of parental responsibility and parental status in the case of surrogacy and adoption, whilst Anthony clarified our understanding of the legal implications for separated parents of children conceived through an international surrogacy arrangement.
