Frisby, both of Legacy Tax + Trust Lawyers, Vancouver, BC, look forward to key practical changes that solicitors working in wills and succession may expect to encounter in their daily practice once the Wills, Estates and Succession Act (“WESA”) comes into force in late 2011 or early 2012. The authors also explore the evolution of the law relating to the Fraudulent Conveyance Act and estate planning through the most recent BC Supreme
