Event Focus

An interesting review of the issues relating to a body that can arise on death and answering all the questions private client lawyers were too squeamish to ask;

  • Can I ensure I will be cryogenically frozen?
  • Can I decide to whom I leave my genetic material?
  • Can I leave my tattoos to my relatives?
  • What happens if someone wants to exhume me?
