Solicitors For The Elderly Celebrates Milestone National Conference

This June, SFE (Solicitors for the Elderly) celebrates its 20th National Conference and promises to deliver fascinating insights to specialists in older client law.

The event, which is being held at the British Library Conference Centre on Thursday 20th June, will explore the theme of ‘20/20 vision’. Each topic is set to provide its guests with clarity on future legal developments, alongside expert foresight on some of the most pressing topics facing the nation and legal sector.

At a time of political uncertainty, as well as significant upcoming reforms to probate fees and paying for social care, each speaker is set to discuss the future of older client law in more detail. Content will be delivered by expert thought leaders with over 30 years’ industry experience, including Caroline Bielanska, Barbara Rich, Julia Abrey, Kathleen O’Hara and former Court of Protection Senior Judge, Denzil Lush.

From the impact of Brexit on estate planning and wills to safeguarding donors due to mental health, the conference will highlight the opportunities and challenges for 2019 and beyond.

To mark the milestone year, the conference will be followed by a drinks reception at the Pullman Hotel.

Previous expert-led annual conferences featured keynotes from Judge Carolyn Hilder, Dame Esther Rantzen, John Suchet, Sir James Munby and Dame Joan Bakewell.

Lakshmi Turner, Chief Executive at SFE noted:

“We warmly welcome our thought-leaders and guests to this year’s conference – a fantastic opportunity for lawyers to network and share insights.

“With an ageing population, our sector is becoming increasingly important, which is also reflected in the growth of our organisation. SFE now has more than 1,600 members trained in providing the highest level of specialist legal care and support for older clients.”

David Sinclair, Chair and Board Director at SFE said:

“It is a huge privilege to chair this year’s National Conference, whilst SFE welcomes its members and stakeholders. It is a great opportunity to share knowledge and promote best practice across older client law.”

“In addition to supporting our lawyers with relevant cases, we also aim to provide a benchmark for customers looking for specialist lawyers. We are becoming increasingly aware of cases where vulnerable clients have found themselves in very difficult situations, so connecting the legal community with events like our conference ensures we are continuously aware of how to best protect clients and identify the ‘red flags’ of abuse.”
