Introduction

In most cases, after the death of a loved one, family members and those close to the deceased come together to agree a fitting and respectful ‘send-off’ for the deceased, whether that involves a burial, cremation, memorial service, or any other way of saying ‘goodbye’.

But many practitioners are finding that disputes relating to funeral arrangements are on the rise and they typically arise in a period of high emotion and tension, when clients are grieving, and need to be dealt with urgently and at short notice.

This webinar is aimed at private client advisers and looks at what happens when disputes do arise.
