  • Overview

    Thomson Snell & Passmore has responded to the Law Commission’s consultation on the law of wills. Our private client lawyers are experts in the law of wills, tax and mental capacity so are well placed to comment on the proposed changes.

    The key law in this area is contained in an Act of Parliament dating from 1837 and would greatly benefit from modernisation. Thomson Snell & Passmore welcomes many of the Law Commission’s proposals. 

    You can find out what was included in our response as follows: Law Commission Response - Thomson Snell & Passmore
