Webinar Four – Conflicts of interest

Attorneys, executors and trustees can each find themselves in a position with an actual or potential conflict of interest.
Often, the conflict arises innocently, and an attorney or executor who is genuinely trying to uphold the wishes of the person who appointed them to that role can find their decisions being challenged, and their position being questioned. Ultimately, this causes costs and stress, which could often be avoided if the appointment was considered more carefully at the planning stage.

In the final webinar of the series, Hayley and Sarah will discuss:

  • common scenarios where a conflict of interest may arise
  • how to address potential conflicts at the drafting stage, including when you should and shouldn’t authorise a conflict
  • what to do when you are placed in a position of conflict
  • what to do when you are not the decision maker, and have concerns about someone misusing their powers for their own benefit.
