We know that there is never a right time, but you really do need to consider your Will and make sure all is in order. And, while you’re at it, let’s discuss a Power of Attorney.

This update session delivered by our Wills, Estates and Succession Planning team will provide an overview of the reasons why all of us, without exception, need to consider our death and possible incapacity and make sure that all is on order and reflects our current wishes and circumstances.


  • Key points to consider
