Reviews for A Practitioner's Guide to the Court of Protection

...a well-balanced and indispensable guide...I cannot recommend this work too highly to fellow Solicitors and others advising elderly and incapacitated clients or their dependants. * Review of a previous edition * Practitioners...will benefit from the text which navigates them through this evolving area safely. * Review of a previous edition *
