SOLICITORS and other professionals involved in cases concerning clients who have suffered from catastrophic injuries can hear from a range of experts at a special one day conference.

Durham-based EMG Solicitors’ annual conference has brought together a number of top speakers who will be sharing their knowledge at the Managing and Improving Your Catastrophic Injury Caseload event on Wednesday 26 April 2017.

The conference – now in its third year – is renowned for bringing together a number of respected professionals who will talk on a range of related and relevant topics during both group and seminar sessions.

The event is being held at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Leeds city centre, enabling attendees and speakers from across the north and south to attend.

Among the speakers will be Emma Gaudern of EMG Solicitors, widely regarded for her expertise as a Court of Protection deputy, who will be leading a discussion on deputyship costs claimed in a special damages schedule.

Other speakers include Paul Kirtley of North West’s Exchange Chambers who will talk on interim payments with reference to the Eeles V Cobham Hire Services case and James Nocker from surveyors and designers, William Martin, looking at accommodation issues for disabled individuals.

EMG Solicitors has also lined up speakers from legal psychological services, personal mobility services and rehabilitation organisations as well as Professor Dominic Regan who will address cost developments and reforms.

“We have managed to bring together some highly experienced and knowledgeable speakers who will provide valuable insights into a number of areas which are extremely relevant to solicitors and other professionals working in this field,” said Emma Gaudern.

“We have had an excellent response to our previous conferences and we are hoping that this one will prove to be just as well received.”

The conference has also been accredited by APIL Training, with attendees getting five hours of APIL CPD accreditation.

The conference costs £75 plus VAT, with £25 of the fee going towards Headway – the brain injury charity. Anyone interested in further information or booking a place can contact [email protected]
