Corporate Express Sponsors Seminar for The City Of Sydney Law Society on Discretionary Trusts
As part of its commitment to provide information of value to its clients and the wider business community, Corporate Express sponsored a seminar for the City of Sydney Law Society (CSLS).
Having built a strong reputation over the years as providers of Discretionary Trust and Unit Trust Deeds, Corporate Express is often asked many technical questions in relation to trustees, settlors and appointors.
Introducing the Seminar on 25 June, 2008, Robert Zitek, Director of Corporate Express said "We thought that in light of the level of interest we are seeing on this subject, it was timely that the topic of our sponsored seminar relate to Discretionary Trusts."
The Deeds Corporate Express supplies to its clients are drafted and regularly updated by Tresscox Lawyers. Michael Heraghty, the lead partner at Tresscox kindly accepted the invitation to present a paper for the CSLS. Michael has 32 year experience in providing legal services and has extensive experience in corporate and commercial law, business structures, merger and acquisitions, commercial agreements, commercial and tax law applying to doctors, estate and business succession planning, tax and superannuation. Michael is and continues to be an invaluable resource to our business and our clients.
Michael’s paper encompassed practical tips and traps in establishing family discretionary trusts.
Michael also invited Robert Gordon to present a paper. Robert has had extensive experience in large accountancy and law firms. Since 1992 he has been a member of the NSW Bar Association specialising in tax with a special interest in international tax laws.
Robert’s paper focused on the use of family discretionary trust for overseas asset protection and taxation.
The seminar was attended by 42 members of the CSLS and was well received by the attendees.
