  • Getting good instructions
  • What to record and how
  • Verifying the information given
    – Relationship to will-maker of intended beneficiaries

    – Are there private international law issues (eg domicile of the will-maker)?
  • Giving proper advice

  • Digital executors
  • Regular review of wills
  • Cross-border issues.
