New edition of Williams, Mortimer and Sunnucks on Executors, Administrators and Probate.


20th March 2013

A new edition of this long-established textbook has just been published. John Ross Martyn of New Square Chambers is one of the General Editors, the other being Nicholas Caddick QC of Hogarth Chambers. Eleven others have contributed, including members from New Square Chambers named below.

The book guides its readers through the whole process of estate administration. It covers the validity of Wills; the making of grants of probate or administration; the duties of executors and administrators; litigation over the estate, including family provision applications; and finally the distribution of the estate.   

John Ross Martyn was once teased about his favourable review of a competing textbook. He therefore has no hesitation in commending the excellence of this new edition of Williams, Mortimer and Sunnucks!
