Synopsis

The middle stages of a relationship property matter will determine whether the parties go to court or reach a negotiated settlement. This webinar will outline disclosure obligations and entitlements, set out approaches to negotiation, and highlight ‘red flags’ should a matter proceed to court. 

Learning outcomes

In the context of a ‘standard’ relationship property matter:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of your obligations and entitlements around disclosure; 
  • Gain insights into the different approaches to negotiation, and their relative suitability depending on the parties and circumstances; and
  • Receive a ‘red flags’ checklist for when a matter proceeds to court. 

Who should attend? 

Family and relationship property lawyers with up to 3 years’ PQE. (Attendance at the previous webinar in this series, to be held on 3 August, is not essential.)
