Partners Pauline Fowler and Mark Harper, and Senior Associate Lauren Deane spoke at this year’s Resolution National Conference.
Pauline Fowler, who chairs the Pensions Tax and Financial Remedies Committee, chaired the Finance Update, attended by an enormous number of delegates.
Mark Harper co-hosted a workshop on ‘Law and cultural competence when working with LGBT and other modern family clients’, where he spoke about divorce and finance to help raise awareness for family solicitors in relation to LGBT family issues.
Lauren Deane (a member of Resolution’s International Committee and a key member of the Brexit Working Party) presented at the International Committee’s webinar at the National Conference. This analysed the impact of Brexit on key areas of International Family Law: divorce and finances jurisdiction; pre-marital agreements; recognition and enforcement issues; children jurisdiction; and international service, and provided a roadmap of the Hague Conventions.
The conference was the biggest annual gathering of family justice professionals, which took place over the course of five days.
Resolution works with families and individuals to resolve issues in a constructive way.
Resolution was founded in 1982 by a group of family lawyers who believed that a non-confrontational approach to family law issues would produce better outcomes for separating families and their children. Since then, Resolution has maintained a commitment to a constructive way of working, while growing to become a membership organisation for professionals that work with separating families.
