Negligence in will drafting

Webinar - 23rd September, live at 3pm


There are several occasions throughout a will draftsman’s retainer where the draftsman might query how far he or she has to go to fulfil his or her duty to the client and the client’s intended beneficiaries.


Questions that frequently arise are:


Can I be sued for not getting enough information on why a client does not want to leave property to a spouse or child?


Is it sufficient that I believe the client has testamentary capacity from my discussions with the client?


How persuasive will a Letter of Wishes be with an eye to defending a claim for undue influence in the future?


Does the Golden Rule have any relevance these days to the pursuit of a professional negligence claim against a will draftsman?


Presented by contentious probate specialists, Sebastian Kokelaar, barrister at Three Stone and Lucinda Brown, Partner and Head of Will and Trusts Disputes at BDB Pitmans and Professor Rob Howard. as they highlight key areas of the will-making process that pose many traps, and what decided cases tell us about how to overcome them.
