Novum Law Director Neil Elliott will be delivering training to health and social care professionals and lawyers when he presents at the Brain Injury Group’s Court of Protection seminar this week (Wednesday 12 July).
The event, which takes place in London, is the third in a series of specialist training seminars planned for this year and will cover all aspects of the Court of Protection including the following key subject areas:
- Mental Capacity Act – a legal update
- Mental capacity assessments
- Financial planning and costs
- The reality of the Court of Protection from a client’s and a deputy’s perspective
- Special educational needs
- Human rights
Chaired by Adam Weitzman QC, of 7 Bedford Row, the seminars aim to deliver expert in-depth information from leading brain injury lawyers to professionals working in the health and social care sectors.
Neil will be presenting the section on the realities of the Court of Protection and speaking about the specific ins and outs of being a deputy representing clients who lack the capacity to make important decisions for themselves.
He will be joined by Jo Tymoshyshyn, the mother of Novum Law client Eddie Tymoshyshyn, who suffered a severe brain injury in a serious road traffic accident when he was just 19 years old.
Neil and his team recently secured Eddie a substantial seven figure compensation settlement to ensure funding for the expert input and rehabilitation support which he will need for the rest of his life. His mother Jo will be talking about the day-to-day realities of caring for a loved one with a severe brain injury and how the Court of Protection works from a client’s perspective.
Neil said: “It promises to be an interesting and informative training day for delegates and I’m looking forward to participating. I’m grateful to Jo and Eddie for agreeing to come along to the seminar to provide their unique insights as a parent and as a client on the workings of the Court of Protection and what it’s like at the interface.”
