Lattimer v Karamanoli related to the estate of the late Dr Evi Kalodiki, a former vascular surgeon, who was terminally ill with cancer when she and her partner (Dr Lattimer, the Claimant) decided to marry. A key issue in the case was whether a will executed just days before a marriage was made in contemplation of that marriage or whether the subsequent marriage served to revoke the will.


Home Office announces positive changes to the EU Settlement Scheme, but uncertainty remains
