Why this event?

The Court of Protection is all too often a mystery to lawyers. They often feel that it does not 'fit in' with their other practice areas. But this is a view that could cost your firm dearly. You could be missing out on a great deal of high quality, long term and profitable work.

Even where lawyers do act as Deputies, they often have a sneaking suspicion that they ought to have applied for a Statutory Will at some point, or that they may have missed something in that property transaction they acted in last year. Isn't there supposed to be some reference to the Court on the Deeds? Is our team really equipped to deal with these complex transactions where the client needs substantial adaptations?

This event brings together cutting edge expertise in this area. Not only will you learn how to identify the potential additional work, but you will also feel equipped to carry it out. You will also find out what the pitfalls are and how to avoid them.
