It is an all too common scenario. An elderly person, reliant upon someone else to handle their money and make decisions about their lives. And that person – maybe an attorney or a deputy or someone informally helping them out, abuses that important position of trust for their own financial gain.

How can the elderly person, who may need their money to meet the costs of future care, be compensated for what has happened? Who makes that decision? To what extent will the Police become involved ? How easy will it be to establish undue influence and a breach of trust? If your primary witness may lack capacity to instruct a solicitor or give evidence, how can these cases succeed?

And will it all be cost effective?

Within our society, elderly, vulnerable people are increasingly at risk from the greed of their own families or acquaintances. As our society ages, “elder abuse” is on the rise.

This seminar will follow a case study of financial recovery and examine the challenges and benefits of this litigation.
