Mishcon de Reya's Sarah Albury takes part in Modern Law Journal's probate roundtable discussion

Sarah Albury, a Senior Associate in Mishcon Private, recently took part in a probate roundtable discussion for Modern Law Journal.

Modern Law Journal gathered a range of private client, probate, wills and trusts and estates practitioners and asked them to give their view on everything from the rise in contentious probate cases to the effect changes in legislation have had on the legal sector. The issues discussed included: the biggest changes to the wills and probate section of the legal market since members of the discussion entered it; the reason for the rise in contentious wills and probate cases;  whether consumers are aware enough of the importance of having a will; whether will writers should be regulated; and if it has become too easy for consumers to take matters into their own hands with ‘DIY’ online services.
