Digital Assets and what happens to them after you die is still very much a hot topic and one that is not straightforward.
Our Digital Assets webinar series is designed to support your understanding of the practical and ethical considerations when applied to Estate Administration and has so far covered Property Rights, the recent Law Commission proposal, and cloud contracts.
Over the next couple of months, we will continue to look at Digital Assets in further detail.
