A litigation lawyer's perspective

Ilott v Mitson – Update

leave a comment »

You will have noticed the latest decision in the CA on 27.7.15 when the court allowed the appeal against the award of £50k from her mother’s estate and increased it to £163k. This clearly has serious repercussions on the effectiveness of wills, and I will be posting another piece as soon as I have had a chance to read the judgment in detail. Give me a day or two. In the mean time, my comments on the original CA decision in 2011 are still relevant. Just a bit behind the times.

PS Post now out – here.
