Newsletter: May 2012


I am delighted to introduce this, our Spring newsletter of 2012.

The coming of Spring heralds the beginning of Chambers‟ 2012 seminar programme, with its usual packed schedule. Forthcoming seminars include a review of the latest developments in the law of adverse possession, and of the current approach of the courts to issues of will construction and administration. We look forward to seeing you there.

It is also my pleasure to introduce our latest member of Chambers, David Welford. David joined Chambers at the beginning of the year following successful completion of his pupillage, and practises in all of Chambers‟ core areas of work. He will be co-presenting the seminar on adverse possession.

In this newsletter members of Chambers offer their thoughts on a variety of topical issues. Johan du Toit SC considers the best approach to shareholder claims if proof of reliance is likely to be problematic. Mark Warwick asks (and answers) the question “Is the will valid?”, Paul de la Piquerie examines the possibilities for recovery of the costs of LVT proceedings and David Welford writes on the topic of informal transfers and adverse possession.

We hope you find these articles both interesting and useful to your practice.

As ever, I welcome any comments you may have.
