The WESA Effect: Where Are We Now?

Pacific Business and Law Institute
The Wills, Estates and Succession Act (WESA) came into force in early 2014. WESA was viewed as a transformative piece of legislation that would significantly reform the law of succession, estate planning and estate administration. Nearly five years in, has this really been the case?

This Forum brings together leading practitioners to examine and discuss the impact WESA has had, looking at everything from procedural changes to unexpected consequences, and what the courts have had to say to date. You will leave with a better understanding of current practice under WESA, how the rules and procedures have really affected estate planning and administration and how best to work within the WESA framework going forward.

Key Areas Addressed:
• An overview of the fundamental changes WESA made and what has changed in practice
• What the courts have said about sections 58 and 59, and what will-makers and executors can learn from the cases
• What has changed for personal representatives
• Some practical applications of WESA including multiple wills
• The practical impact of WESA on probate and tips for navigating the new regime

Who Should Attend?
• Lawyers of all levels advising on wills, trusts and estates
• Estate planning specialists
• Accountants providing tax and estate planning advice
• Financial planners, investment managers and other professionals involved in estate and wealth management
• Paralegals
