Contentious Probate Update 2021

Author headshot image Posted by , Partner

Royds Withy King and St John’s Chambers Wills & Trusts team are delighted to invite you to their annual contentious probate update seminar held in association with Stone King.

Contentious Probate Update

The seminar aims to bring practitioners up to speed with all the latest developments in the world of contentious probate.

It is principally targeted at solicitors who are (or would like to be) involved in contentious probate work, but it would also be of interest to non-contentious lawyers, Will writing firms and professional executors.

There will be an opportunity at the end of the seminar for questions and answers as well as a chance to catch up face-to-face with the speakers for drinks and canapés.
