Lasting Power of Attorney: Man signing legal document

Modernising Lasting Power of Attorney

Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is an important form of advanced decision making giving people the option to assign a trusted person (or persons) to make decisions on their behalf should they ever lack capacity in the future.

However, the role of LPA is not always well understood, and has often been misapplied or even in some cases neglected by some professional teams who may lack sufficient training.
