  • Obtaining Judicial Advice in Wills and Estate Matters - When things turn ugly, a prudent executor or trustee should consider whether to seek judicial advice to reduce the risk of claims against them. The session looks at the issues in obtaining judicial advice in wills and estate matters and how it can be used as a risk management tool.

  • Will Caveats: Proceed with Caution - Probate caveats are a useful tool to prevent the grant of probate. However, filing a caveat should not be done lightly and could result in significant costs if filed in the wrong circumstances or without proper grounds. This session will provide a guide to the lodging of a caveat and what practitioners need to be aware of.

  • Being on the Front Foot: Drafting Settlement Deeds following Estate Litigation - Deals done at the courtroom door or following mediation are a common ending to protracted disputes. The preparation of a settlement deed or checklist in advance means you can take control of the negotiations with your own document, ensuring a quick resolution with all the bases covered. This session will set out the key elements of settlement arrangements in the estate litigation context.
