In the latest in our series of podcasts, Hannah Minty and Gareth Ledsham examine the cross-over between succession law and family law in dealing with issues that arise when a child who habitually resides in England and Wales becomes the legal owner of property abroad. They look at the recent case in which Gareth was instructed of Re BC (A Child), where a Specific Issue Order was secured under the Children Act 1989 and consider the useful guidance provided by Mr Justice Peel on the procedure to be followed in these hybrid applications.

Hannah is a partner in the family team. She advises clients from all backgrounds on divorce and financial matters, jurisdictional disputes, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, property disputes between cohabitees, and financial claims on behalf of children following the breakdown of relationships between unmarried couples

Gareth is a partner in the trust and estate disputes team. He advises on the resolution of conflicts that may arise out of trusts, or the estate of a deceased person including challenges to wills, breach of trust/applications to remove executors and trustees and claims relating to ownership of a deceased's property.
