Who should attend?

The Agricultural Law Association (Somerset & Dorset Group) will be holding their Spring seminar on Monday, 25th March with St John’s Chambers and Old Mill Accountancy at the offices of Clarke Willmott, Blackbrook Park Gate, Taunton.

Topics include:

  • Farms, promises and half truths
    Leslie Blohm QC and Christopher Jones, Barristers, St John’s Chambers
    Leslie and Christopher will deliver a lecture on informal agreements and partnership assets in a farming context.  The talk will look at the recent cases of Wild v Wild [2018] EWHC 2197 and Ham v Bell [2016] EWHC 1791 and consider what lessons can be drawn from those judgments and applied by the busy practitioner. Following Leslie and Christopher’s lecture, delegates will be given a case study containing a scenario and series of questions for discussion and debate!
  • Partnership disputes – An accountant’s approach
    Mark Shelton, Consultant, Old Mill Accountants & Financial Planners
    Mark will discuss the accountancy aspects of these two cases and will consider the role of the accountant in avoiding similar disputes.  In particular he will look at how partnership property, and a partner’s entitlement to partnership assets might be reflected in the accounts.

Members and Non-Members are welcome to attend.
