A senior figure at an Island law firm was among many leading solicitors, barristers, offshore lawyers and trust practitioners invited again to a prestigious international gathering in the stunning surroundings of Barcelona.

Giles Hill, a Director and Head of Dispute Resolution for DQ Advocates, joined counterparts from around the globe at the recent Fresh Perspectives Conference.

Trusts under the Hammer’ this year focused on the evolution of trust litigation in modern society, examining the ever-changing world of contentious trusts.

Based at the uber-cool W Hotel in Barcelona for a second year, the programme explored future proofing trusts, including the dynamics of the modern family unit and increasing judicial interference with trusts.

More than 75 delegates also enjoyed presentations and panel sessions on recent trends in trust litigation funding, trustee liability, the tension between the principle of open court and confidentiality and the potential application of Artificial Intelligence in the legal and trust industries.

Giles explained: ‘The conference was the ideal platform to share ideas and experiences and it was an honour to be invited to it once again.

‘To build trusted relationships with experienced contentious trusts solicitors and partners with such vast experience is invaluable and helps us expand our knowledge even further on a global perspective.

‘The quality of the sessions and calibre of the illuminating presentations were first class and it was fascinating to discuss such a diverse range of subjects.’
