Property Rights of International Couples Attention: The EU Intervenes

7th June 2011

This event provides a forum for debate and discussion of two new EU legislative proposals: the Regulations on jurisdiction, applicable law and the recognition and enforcement of decisions in matters of matrimonial property rights and regarding the property consequences of registered partnerships which the EU has issued in March 2011. In concert with the proposed Regulation on international successions and the legislation on international divorces these texts will change the EU landscape profoundly in the near future. What will be the consequences for estate planning if the UK would or would not participate in these Regulations? Speakers will reflect upon the current situation in the UK and its present shortcomings and on the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed regimes. They will also highlight the relationship of the new texts with the Rome III and the Brussels IIbis Regulations, with the currently debated proposal for an EU Regulation on successions and with related work of the Hague Conference. Individual presentations will be followed by a round table discussion.
