An application for special leave was filed last week against the decision of the Tasmanian Full Court in Calvert v Badenach [2015] TASFC 8.

This is the case where the Full Court held that a solicitor owes a duty to beneficiaries of a will to advise the willmaker of the existence of family provision rights of potential applicants, and further to advise of possible strategies to avoid or minimize the FPA risks.  See previous blog for reference.
