Byline: BY TONY McDONOUGH Deputy Business Editor

ATLANTIC Chambers has announced plans to hold more property-focused events after a good response to its first property law conference.

The one-day event at Liverpool's Radisson Hotel was booked up within a matter of days, demonstrating the demand for up-to-date developments in complex property law.

Andrew Williams, of Atlantic Chambers, who chaired the conference, said delegates were keen to hear of matters relating to insolvency and property litigation issues.

He said: "Property law can be complex and does not keep still, which perhaps explains the immense interest in this conference.

"Many solicitors are also finding themselves confronted with a different type of work as a result of the current economic conditions, with the conveyancing side slowing down and dispute work on the increase.

"The conference was extremely informative and the day was a huge success.

"We are already planning a much larger event next year and we would like to think this conference will become a permanent fixture."

Delegates heard from a number of keynote speakers, including Liverpool Chancery District Judge Heyworth, Rachel Watkin, a partner at commercial law firm Halliwells, and Charles Hubbard, a chartered valuation surveyor at Edmund Kirby.

Atlantic Chambers, in Cook Street, Liverpool, has one of the largest specialist property law groups in the North West.

The conference, hosted by specialist property barristers from Atlantic Chambers' Chancery and Commercial Team, explored a number of themes including joint ownership of property, tenancies and valuation.
