Will writing workshop

Happy mature family couple of clients consulting legal expert, lawyer, solicitor about legal document signing, asking advice, question, talking, celebrating deal, house or medical insurance buying

Making sure the people we love are taken care of after we die is something we all want to do. An up-to-date Will ensures that your Estate, including any copyright interests and royalties, is distributed in accordance with your wishes.

Thinking about writing a Will but not sure where to start?

Join us on 29th February at 1pm at our Will writing workshop with our partner media and entertainment law firm Simkins LLP, and our mother organisation PRS for Music.

Event description

The workshop will be an online webinar and will aim to provide PRS members with all the useful information they need for drawing up a Will and answer some of the most frequently asked questions, such as:

  • What can I include in my Will?
  • To whom can I leave my Estate?
  • What assets are included in my Estate?
  • Can I transfer my copyrights and other intellectual property under my Will?
  • Can I leave my royalty payments to my beneficiaries?

Our specialist guest speakers will be Oliver Sharp, who leads the Simkins Private Client team, and Leigh Luke, PRS for Music Contact Centre Manager for Member Support.

Oliver advises individuals, families and trustees on all aspects of private client law. His practice focuses on estate planning and succession, the preparation of Wills and lasting powers of attorney and the administration of estates.

New to the Music industry but a wealth of experience in the customer service world, Leigh has been part of PRS transformation project for Member Support, changing the way PRS support members by reducing the time it takes to answer queries and increasing the volume of calls.

At the end of the workshop there will be a Q&A session.

Karen Fishman and Melissa Manski from the PRS for Music Legal team will also be available to answer any questions regarding the PRS constitution and rules that apply to successor membership.
