About the Webinar

Estate planning is an ongoing event, with professional advisers intricately involved with a client and their family over an extended period in relation to very sensitive and significant matters. This session will examine the responsibility and risks of advisers for ascertaining the capacity of their clients over time and the consequences of failure to take appropriate steps, including:

  • The difference between legal capacity and testamentary capacity and when the distinction matters: Mikhail v Hana [2019] NSWCA 97
  • What obligations does an adviser have to investigate their client’s capacity? Ryan v Dalton; Estate of Ryan [2017] NSWSC 1007
  • Professional guidelines and the role of medical and other experts: Greer v Greer [2021] QCA 143; Gooley v Gooley [2021] NSWSC 56
  • Options for impaired capacity management, including substitute and supported decision making
  • Planning for lack of capacity – what should be in the estate plan and ongoing responsibilities of practitioners to aging clients
  • Practical issues arising from diminishing capacity
  • Key risk management and precautionary steps for practitioners: Drivas v Jakopovic [2019] NSWSCA 218; Croft v Sanders [2019] NSWSCA 303; Ip v Chiang [2021] NSWSC 822
