In the increasingly complex world of property and equalization, mistakes can be critical – and costly. Over one intensive day, acquire the key information and contacts you need to navigate these issues with confidence.

This annual OsgoodePD program — designed and delivered by the leading family law experts – focusses on the more complex and challenging current and emerging issues in property and equalization. This is not a quick summary of the year in review. Rather, it is an in-depth analysis of the critical issues confronting the family law bar.

Let OsgoodePD’s experts provide you with the benefit of their experience and answer your most pressing questions on topics including:

  • Expert guidance on getting the most out of your expert
  • Double-dipping post-Halliwell: practical strategies for how to best advance your clients’ interests
  • Tackling Joint Family Ventures, Trusts and Other Equitable Remedies
  • Tax Tips and Other Practical Strategies to Maximize What Your Client Keeps and Minimize What They Pay

“The speakers were first rate. Went beyond the papers to focus on practical issues and pitfalls for counsel…Struck the right note for senior counsel and those less familiar with family law concepts. Complex issues well explained and clarified.”
