MBL Webinar Delivered by SE-Solicitors – Working with Clients who Lack Capacity in Financial Remedy Proceedings

July 1st 2024

On Thursday 11th July, Deborah Davies from our specialist Family team is delivering an upcoming MBL’s webinar on “Working with Clients who Lack Capacity in Financial Remedy Proceedings”. As a highly successful family lawyer with over 27 years’ experience in divorce, finances and child law, Deborah’s expertise enables her to tackle the topic from every perspective. 

With pensioners more likely than ever to be divorcing and growing understanding of mental health issues, it is increasingly important that all solicitors working in this area need a sound grounding in working with protected parties.

This two-hour virtual classroom seminar will explore practical considerations and discuss challenging issues which arise in cases where parties lack capacity. 

This live and interactive course will cover the below:

  • When to seek medical assessment and how to go about it
  • Working with clients who lack capacity
  • Litigation friends – who to choose, who to avoid
  • File management
  • Funding issues
  • The impact on proceedings
  • Practical considerations for progressing a case
  • Current caselaw

The course requires some prior subject knowledge.
