The Grand Hotel Reykjavík,
Knect365 and ConTrA present: Trusts in Litigation
The only conference to look at the pervasive nature of trusts bringing together experts in trust litigation, civil fraud, insolvency and family.
Trusts in Litigation conference highlights
ConTrA (the network for Contentious Trusts Associates and junior counsel) has teamed up with Knect365 to deliver a new, fresh look at the world of trusts in litigation.
This conference proudly supports the future leading lights in Trust Litigation with a new and exciting speaker line up focusing on the next generation of Partners and new and future QCs. Whilst maintaining a mix of senior speakers and delegates, the rising stars of the industry are being given a platform to speak and an opportunity to network in the plentiful social activities on offer.
What Will We be Covering?
Trusts are prevalent in many areas of law and issues relating to them can arise in numerous scenarios. This conference will discuss contentious trusts proceedings as well as the interaction of trusts with other areas including:
- Civil Fraud
- Real Estate
Pairing trust practitioners with experts in these fields for unique and enlightening discussions.
Social Calendar for the Event

1st Feb - Drink from 6.30-8pm at the conference hotel before being collected to go on the Northern Lights tour (return approx 11pm)

Dress code for the conference - business casual - wear a suit or trousers and a shirt - whatever you prefer. For all social activties please wear casual clothes and wrap up warm for the tours with snow friendly footwear!
The aim of the conference is to create an affordable event which offers a new speaker line up, supporting both the new generation of partners and QCs, as well as having the usual mix of senior partners and advisers. Very few, if any, conferences engage the junior partners and Associates and we believe it is essential to both support and develop this demographic as they both have a huge say in the way litigation is progressed as well as ensuring good relationships are maintained and created early on in an individual’s personal career journey.
The conference will cover Trust litigation as well as taking a wider view of where trusts interact with other areas, such as civil fraud, insolvency, real estate and matrimonial work. This will allow attendees to mix with both trust litigators and a range of different other specialists.
The conference format will be not only informative but fun and we encourage solicitors and counsel of all levels to attend.
