Rockwills is a name associated with wills in Malaysia. In 1995, it introduced to Malaysia professional will-writing services. It built up what was a relatively unknown service through a franchise model. Through its network of franchisees, Rockwills facilitated more than 90,000 in having wills[1] but this is still a fraction of the adult population(estimated total population as at July 2008 : 25,274,132[2]) eligible to write their wills. Estimates place it as high as 90% of the adult population still do not have wills[3] . Rockwills is also a provider of will custody services. The name is also now associated with retail trust services and estate planning in Malaysia.

These services were marketed using a franchise system. With this approach, Rockwills is the first company to pioneer the franchising of the will-writing and custody service.[4][5]

By the end of 2008, Rockwills had written more than 90,000 wills and appointed about 3,000 franchisees throughout the country.[6]
