Ticker to co-chair Advising the Elderly Client program

Toronto-area estate litigator Charles Ticker will co-chair an upcoming Osgoode Professional Development program, designed specifically for those who provide legal advice to elderly clients.

On Sept. 28, the ‘Advising the Elderly Client: The 2016 Practical Guide for Legal Professionals’ program will outline current best practices and issues that frequently affect senior clients and their families, providing attendees with a practical understanding of what to do, and not do, in their role as a lawyer.

The faculty of practising lawyers, capacity assessors, and clinicians will discuss topics such as the roles and responsibilities of the lawyer in evaluating capacity, end of life and advance care planning in light of Carter, how are the courts responding to predatory marriages, as well as detecting, proving and dealing with undue influence. Other topics on the agenda include deathbed will changes, divorcing with dementia and navigating financial institutions.

In addition to co-chairing the program, Ticker will moderate a panel discussion from 12:45 - 2 p.m. on ‘Dealing with Undue Influence Issues.’

The event will run from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Osgoode Professional Development Centre, located at 1 Dundas St. W., 26th floor in Toronto, and via webcast.
