David Rees QC and Alexander Drapkin to speak at Private Client Confederation in Dublin

David Rees QC and Alexander Drapkin are to speak at the Private Client Confederation 2018 taking place in Dublin on 11 and 12 October. The Confederation aims to deliver a fresh look at the private client world and is chaired by Rupert Ticehurst of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner. David and Alexander will be exploring how to tell if your client has capacity and what to do about it if you suspect they do not. While such matters require delicate handling in order to preserve the client relationship, the potential incapacity of a client raises serious implications in terms of both professional obligations and liability for costs. It is advisable for practitioners to be alert to the issue and have strategies for dealing with clients about whom they become concerned.

This year David has been in two Court of Protection test cases, one concerning the appointment of trust corporations as deputies and the other dealing with deputies’ charges. He was recently featured in Chambers and Partners High Net Worth 2018 for his traditional chancery work. Alexander has a broad traditional chancery practice as part of which he is often instructed in the Court of Protection. David led Alexander in the trust corporation matter.

Other speakers include Joanna Poole of Farrer & Co; Simon Goldring of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner; and Matthew Humphries of Stewarts.
