The 10th Transcontinental Trusts Bermuda 2024 conference is taking place June 19-21 at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club.

Law firm Appleby Bermuda said it will be a silver sponsor at the event.

The three-day conference attracts more than 200 delegates from around the globe, and features more than 60 speakers, including Appleby Private Client & Trusts partner Nicola Bruce.

She will present on a panel, Jurisdictional Update, which will examine regulatory and tax updates and developments in the business of trusts.

Other Appleby trusts legal experts from the Private Client & Trusts and Dispute Resolution departments attending the conference include counsel Caljonah Smith and associates Luisa Olander and James Sellick, and Latin America expert Eduardo Fox.

Appleby said the event provides an opportunity for delegates to discuss current challenges impacting trusts internationally, while connecting with the full breadth of the private client network to generate impactful engagement.

An Appleby statement continued: “Nicola has a wealth of experience in offshore private client work, and has acted for some of the world’s highest net-worth international families on complex matters including the establishment, amendment and restructuring of trusts, and transactions involving substantial business assets held in trust.

“Her experience also includes charitable and philanthropic trusts, and establishing and advising commercial purpose trusts, particularly in the insurance sector.

“Having acted as a director of high-value trust and holding companies, Nicola has a deep personal insight into the complexities of acting as a trustee. She has extensive experience of trust litigation, in particular court applications to restructure trusts and extend their perpetuity periods.”
