Event Details


STEP NSW Branch invites you to an address by Stephen Lynch, TEP, who will be presenting on "Professional Negligence in Will Preparation and Estate Administration".


PROFESSIONAL NEGLIGENCE IN WILLS AND ESTATES – BULLETPROOFING YOUR PRACTICE: Professional negligence claims are frightfully common in the area of wills and estates. This presentation will look at where claims are often made and what you can do to ensure your practice is out of the firing line. It covers:

• Responsibilities to beneficiaries vs the client.
• Delays in preparing wills – what is reasonable and when could you find yourself exposed?
• When should you execute an informal will?
• Failing to understand the family dynamics of the will-maker.
• Advising on potential family provision claims.
• Avoiding common estate administration mistakes including. delay, mistakes, and incorrect distributions.
• Anticipating future challenges – bulletproofing your file and other measures to protect your back.


We look forward to and invite attendee engagement and Q&A during and after the presentation.
