In July 2020, The Law Society published its practice note dealing with financial abuse. This made clear that practitioners, including those conducting private client work, have a responsibility to be aware of financial abuse and to understand their role in preventing it.
In this online session brought to you by Today’s Training, part of Today’s Wills and Probate, John Lambe and Victoria Motley of Forbes solicitors will be joined by Tom Gosling of 23 Essex Street Chambers to discuss financial abuse of vulnerable persons and the steps that can be taken to protect their position.
Simply register now to review this session from Holly Chantler, head of the Private Client team at Morrisons Solicitors LLP, who will outline the relevant legal (statutory, guidance and case law) framework and to give confidence in identifying where capacity may be an issue and how to deal with it.
The session is aimed at legal practitioners and medical practitioners (including paralegals and trainee solicitors, or equivalent, social workers and case managers) who are inexperienced in applying the Mental Capacity Act 2005 in the assessment of capacity in their day-to-day practice. It is relevant for all areas of legal practice.
