We are excited to announce Brian Herd as a keynote speaker for the upcoming Health in Difference 2015 conference!
Brian is a partner in CRH Law and has been a lawyer since 1983.
He is recognised as one of Australia’s leading experts in the areas of elder law, retirement, disability and aged care.
Brian has extensive experience in life planning for older people and the legal issues impacting on them including making Wills, administering estates, disputes over Wills, superannuation, social security, retirement villages and aged care, incapacity, the Guardianship Regime, the loss of a spouse or the ‘suddenly single syndrome’, planning for disabled children, elder abuse, enduring powers of attorney, advance health directives, family agreements and disputes and mediation.
His expertise also extends to the structuring of business affairs and advising on the impact of the transfer of interests in family businesses including trusts and family companies.
As a passionate believer in the crucial role of charitable and community organisations, he also spends a significant amount of his time advising the not for profit and community sectors on Board governance, restructuring and constitutional review, mergers and acquisitions, legal compliance and risk management especially in the aged care, retirement and disability sectors.
Brian is a popular presenter in public forums on elder law issues and is also regularly invited to address the changing legal dynamics and needs of the aged care and disability sectors at industry conferences.
In 2014, for the second year in a row, Brian was named one of Australia’s best lawyers in Retirement Villages and Senior Living Law.
Brian will be presenting in the Ageing and Aged Care Stream at the National LGBTI Health Alliance Health in Difference Conference.
