International Symposium on Special Needs Trusts
Partner, James H. Gillis has been invited to participate in the International Symposium on Special Needs Trusts in Hong Kong on October 13 & 14, 2017.
In a recent study, the University of Hong Kong and the Concern Group of Guardianship and Financial Affairs found that there was a strong demand in Hong Kong for a government-operated special needs trust for individuals dealing with disabilities. In response to the study, the Hong Kong Government is exploring the possibility and feasibility of such a trust.
The Symposium will bring together various scholars and practitioners from across the world to explore the law and other mechanisms that exist to assist individuals with special needs.
