This session will cover recent important developments in the area of probate - both contentious and non-contentious. The precise content is being left flexible so that the seminar can include the inevitable developments which will occur over the course of the year. This session will be practical and relevant to those involved in will drafting or the administration of estates.
The session will be delivered by Sheena Grattan BL. Sheena is a practising Chancery barrister in Northern Ireland specialising in private client work.
