From the Chair

It is 45 years since what is now the Property (Relationships) Act 1976 was introduced into Parliament. It was then, and remains (in its much amended form), a complex and challenging piece of social legislation, a minefield for the casual or the unwary.

The many and varied provisions of the Act are engaged whether one is considering a so called “big money case”, the division of a house-car- dog property pool or signing off a contracting out agreement.

Case law has continued to evolve as legal innovators and those willing and able to think outside of the box have tested the boundaries of the Act. Those who linger, relying on their memory of last year’s case law, run the risk of being left behind.

Knowing the way the law is evolving enhances the ability to resolve disputes as the Act intended – speedily, inexpensively and (above all), justly.

We have now assembled a faculty of genuine excellence to bring you up to date with all the latest developments.

I encourage and welcome you to join us in June 2020 to explore legal developments in this challenging and complex area.

Chair: Simon Jefferson QC
