Digital Accounts of the Deceased – A Change in Approach?

Many of us would have already come across or received notifications from ‘ghost’ accounts (where someone has died but their online account is still open) on one social media platform or another. It can be a little disconcerting and sometime distressing to receive a message reminding you of the birthday for someone who is no […]


Disputes. How rhw can help resolve them.
