Court of Protection work is a growth area in private client practice. Statistics show that increasing numbers of clients are becoming mentally compromised in later life, many of whom do not have Lasting Powers of Attorney. In such circumstances the Court of Protection can appoint two types of deputy; those who look after property and financial affairs and those who look after a person’s health and welfare.
This two part course will provide viewers with an in-depth examination of the theory behind making an application to the Court of Protection to appoint a deputy and will offer guidance and assistance to ensure that if you make an application to the Court of Protection, this will be successful.
