16 Apr 2018


Bedell Cristin Partner, Alasdair Davison, is a speaker at the forthcoming international trust conference in Geneva. His presentation will focus on the high-profile court case of Crociani & O’rs vs Crociani & O’rs [2017] JRC146.

The conference, ‘Transcontinental Trust 2018 – Shaping the Global Agenda of the Offshore World’ takes place at the Grand Kempinski Hotel in Geneva, 17 – 19 April.

Alasdair, a partner at Bedell Cristin’s Guernsey office and one of the senior litigation lawyers from the firm that represented the plaintiffs, Cristiana Crociani and her two daughters, Delia and Livia Delrieu, will pinpoint some of the relevant issues that arose during the lengthy court case and their implications for the private wealth industry.

Entitled ‘Feuding Families, the Film Star and the Princess: Lessons from Crociani’, Alasdair’s analysis will include an examination of the perils of controlling settlors and the huge risks for trustees in making invalid distributions. His presentation takes place during the litigation summit at the start of the three-day conference which is one of the foremost private wealth events in Europe, attracting hundreds of delegates.
