The Australian Asian Business Women’s Association (AABWA) continued its dedication to empowerment and education with its "Personal Growth 2023 Series 2" themed around Family Law and Asset Protection. The session held on Sunday 3rd September took place at Pearsons Family Law’s offices and workshopped the pivotal topic of "family property."
Key Themes Discussed

Appropriate procedures for transferring family assets.

At the helm of this enlightening session were three remarkable women: Leanne Abela (Principal Director), Deborah Sim (Senior Associate Solicitor), and Brenda Ling (Associate Solicitor).

Wills and Powers of Attorney,
De Facto Relationships, and
Loans and Gifts in the Context of Asset Protection.
Promoting a relaxed and enjoyable ambience, the event encouraged open discussions and exchanges of ideas among the attendees and speakers. The approachable environment was purposefully curated to foster a sense of comfort and encouragement, allowing attendees to ask questions and share their experiences without hesitation.
