Exciting News for Succession Lawyers of New South Wales

Dr John de Groot and Phillip McGowan today announced the upcoming release of their new reference book, de Groot’s Wills, Probate and Administration Practice (New South Wales).

Several years in the making, this text has been specifically written and designed to provide a comprehensive and practical guide for legal practitioners in the field of wills, probate and estate administration.

Dr John de Groot, Special Counsel at de Groots wills and estate lawyers and Author of the text noted,

“There’s so much happening in the area of wills and estates it’s challenging to stay across it all. The New South Wales book, like the Queensland edition, acts as a bridge between the law and practice in the area of wills and estates.”

“It brings together the knowledge and expertise of some of the most experienced practitioners in this area” he said.

Dr John de Groot is Author of Wills, Probate and Administration Practice (Queensland), now in its 26th edition.

The idea for a New South Wales edition was first discussed in 2008 when Editor, Phillip McGowan moved to Sydney as Director of de Groots wills and estate lawyers and recognised a need for the text.

“During my many years working with Dr John de Groot in Queensland I became very familiar with the Queensland text, using it on an almost daily basis.” He said.

“It was when I moved to Sydney in 2008 to establish the Sydney office of de Groots wills and estate lawyers that I looked for a New South Wales equivalent but there wasn’t one.”

“I spoke with John about this and it was agreed that work on a New South Wales edition should commence. That was four years ago. We are proud to have developed this reference tool for New South Wales practitioners.” He said.

The text will be officially launched in early October and can be pre-purchased now in both online and print formats at a reduced pre-publication rate at: www.degrootspublishing.com/newsouthwalesWPAP/
