REPEAT: ‘Gifts in the Court of Protection’ at The Supreme Court

Date: 3rd March 2020, 08:00 to 09:30

Location: Little George St, Westminster, London SW1P 3BD, UK


Ten Old Square first held this briefing in November 2019 and due to popular demand, decided to repeat it.

Richard Dew, Georgia Bedworth and Leon Pickering discussed recent developments in relation to
gift-giving and the Court of Protection. Georgia revisited IHT mitigation in the light of PBC v JMA to consider
whether it offers a coherent new approach and Leon considered recent cases concerning gifts by attorneys
and deputies, including where they have been authorised by the terms of the LPA.
