Today, it is more challenging than ever for property lawyers to apply the relevant rules in complex and non-routine matters.

This presentation will consider key risks which have emerged in recent times.
In 2022, The Law Society shared guidance on meeting the needs of vulnerable clients, highlighting the need for solicitors to adapt their practices to identify and meet the needs of clients who may be vulnerable, due to their personal circumstances and barriers put in place by society.

The webinar will provide practical tips for dealing with clients who may be vulnerable, including those with communication difficulties and whose capacity may be affected.
