Digital Assets - What Private Client Lawyers Need To Know - Webinar
VIEW LIVE from 1-2pm on Monday 6 December
70% of those aged 64-75 are now online. Our society will be soon be virtually completely computer literate. An individual’s personal computer can contain various digital assets. Do our clients know what a digital asset is?
Perhaps more importantly, is our profession up to speed with dealing with client’s digital assets, particularly how to pass them on death etc. It is presently estimated that those owning a personal computer in America have several thousand dollars’ worth of digital assets. It will not be long before the UK finds itself in a similar situation – are you able to deal with digital assets?
The purpose of this webinar is to provide delegates with an understanding of: just what a “digital asset” is; how a client’s executors can access the same; whether the client actually owns the digital asset – or whether it belongs to the account provider; how executors can secure title thereto and what the security risks involved are and the latest developments in the digital world – the Dark Net, the right to be forgotten and “revenge porn”.
