Toby Bishop to speak at event advising a suicide’s family about forfeiture and relief (Ninian v Findlay 2019)

SFE London is delighted to welcome John Critchley, Toby Bishop and Alexa Payet, the legal team instructed by the successful Claimant in Ninian v Findlay [2019] to present on suicide: advising families about forfeiture and relief.

The criminal offence of assisted suicide stirs up strong opinions. But what is often overlooked in the debate is the potential financial consequences for families. There is widespread and fundamental misunderstanding among the public about these issues. If they are not dealt with contemporaneously, the effect on the assister’s interest and assets, including tax consequences, may affect the administration of their estate decades later.

John, Toby, and Alexa will explore the legal, ethical, and practical issues at play in these highly sensitive and complex cases, to help families and those advising them to understand the various issues around the forfeiture rule – what it is, when it applies, its effect, how the court analyses whether it is engaged, and the court’s approach to an application for relief.
