Key speaker

Hannah Clarkson is a wills and probate solicitor who is passionate about changing will statistics. Her aim is to encourage people at all stages of their life to be proactive about writing a will. Sometimes people  consider writing a will as something to do in later life. However, Hannah believes that when it comes to writing a will, it's never too early to consider issues such as co-habitation, joint assets, and children.
