Drafting wills is a high risk (and traditionally low cost) activity and any errors may not come to light until many years after drafting the will.

How do you minimise risk? Does limiting your retainer help? What is the ‘golden rule’ and what happens if you do not adhere to it? What timescales are applicable to will drafting? How does negligence arise when wills are executed incorrectly by clients? When does the limitation period expire?

This new virtual classroom seminar will examine the problems and pitfalls of will drafting and is recommended for private client practitioners who draft wills.
