Wills – Getting it right, but what if it goes wrong?


An event aimed at solicitors who prepare wills, to support them in dealing with situations where their clients’ will is likely to be contested, is being held virtually by Sintons.

The Wills – Getting it right, but what if it goes wrong? event will tackle the main areas of contesting a will and examine how solicitors drafting wills can seek to robustly protect a testator’s wishes.

The seminar, held in conjunction with Radcliffe Chambers, will also address how will drafting solicitors should respond on the occasions that matters do not go according to plan.

Professionals working in the drafting of wills are invited to attend the free event, held on September 15 via Teams.

Speakers will include Emma Saunders, partner and head of contentious probate at Sintons, alongside associate Jonathan Grogan, and Katherine McQuail, a barrister at Radcliffe Chambers.

“Preparing wills is a privilege for us to be a part of as professionals, in supporting people to document their wishes to take place after their death – but sometimes things do not work out as our clients would wish,” says Emma, regularly acknowledged as one of the leaders in contentious work nationally.

“In such situations, it is important that issues are identified quickly and professionals are aware of how to respond, while supporting families through what can be a difficult and distressing process.”

“We hope this event will help in negotiating any difficulties and being alive to what may be faced. We look forward to welcoming attendees where Katherine, Jonathan and myself will share our experience and expertise for the benefit of colleagues working in the area of will drafting.”

* Wills – Getting it right, but what if it goes wrong? Will be held virtually on Thursday, September 15, from 5pm to 7pm. To sign up, contact Peter.jennings@sintons.co.uk
