Update on “Joint Family Ventures”


The framework of a joint family venture can look very different depending on the clients’ and their spouse’s specific circumstances, including the special needs, intellectual capacity, cultural community, language, gender, and socioeconomic status. This CPD aims to provide case studies of different circumstances for lawyers to consider when their clients’ joint family venture may look significantly different that what the lawyer is accustomed to, and how supporting a diverse law firm can ameliorate these blind spots and better advocate for their client.
