Private Client analysis: This case concerned the construction of a Will which failed to unambiguously identify the testator’s intended charitable beneficiaries. The claim was not opposed by the potential beneficiaries, and the executor sought summary judgment without a hearing. In the particular circumstances of the case the court was prepared to deal with the short points of construction upon a summary judgment application and was also prepared to deal with the matter on paper without a hearing pursuant to CPR 23.8. Written by Matthew Wales, barrister, at Guildhall Chambers, Bristol.
