Synergy Conference 2022 - the new way to do CPD

Brought to you by LawSkills, Leading Legal Minds and PLG, The Property Ladder Group, the Synergy Conference will see its doors opening for the very first time.

What can attendees expect on the day?

Well, firstly the location of the conference is beautiful. Prested Hall is a wonderful listed building with breath-taking gardens. There is a really lovely feel to the place - it doesn’t feel like a conference hall as it isn’t one!

The way the CPD is being delivered is different too. In addition to Gill, we have the very charming Martin P Holdsworth speaking, providing updates on matters including:

  • Tax
  • Probate
  • Pensions
  • Wills
  • Power of Attorney
  • Trusts
  • Digital Assets
  • IPFD Claims

So, when we look at CPD we really are covering the main topics.

In addition, we will be working on a “real life” scenario, which will provide problem solving for a more unusual potential case.

We have asked our very generous Sponsors to join us on stage for this part, so you will not just gain a better understanding of how best to interact with firms available to you, but also how and when they can fit into estate administration.
