Mental Capacity Webinar – hosted by Ashfords and Dr James Warner
11am on 19th January

Contentious probate litigation is rising; over 8,000 caveats are lodged against estates annually. A frequent reason for challenging a Will is the testator may have lacked mental capacity.

Presented by Kerry Morgan-Gould of Ashfords and Dr James Warner, a consultant old age psychiatrist and medical director of Halcyon Doctors, this webinar will outline the key ingredients for a Testamentary Capacity claim (Banks v Goodfellow vs Mental Capacity Act 2005), initial steps you should take as a potential Defendant to such a claim, alternatives to litigation and the process of undertaking retrospective assessments of testamentary capacity.

At the end of the session delegates should have a understanding of the key aspects of a probate claim on the basis of Testamentary Capacity and know what to expect from medical experts when instructing a retrospective capacity assessment.
