Date:
19th March 2020

Court:
High Court

Facts:

Alexander successfully represented the claimants in the trial of the late law-lord, Lord Templeman’s will, resisting a challenge based on lack of testamentary capacity, despite the testator suffering mild dementia from Alzheimer’s disease and the ‘golden rule’ not having been followed.  The dispute focused on whether the testator remembered the terms of and reasons for his previous will, and whether it mattered if he did not: https://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Ch/2020/632.html
