Brown and Fountain Participate In Panel Discussion

Stephen A. Brown and Reed N. Fountain recently participated in a panel discussion entitled “Representing Clients with Diminished Capacity” at the 36th Annual North Carolina Estate Planning and Fiduciary Law Program in Kiawah Island, South Carolina. The panel provided practical insight into the complicated ethical and legal issues arising from the representation of clients with demonstrated or suspected diminished capacity. Panel members analyzed fact patterns based on “real life” cases and representations, including claims of malpractice against a drafting attorney. The ethical legal obligations of attorneys were explored from the perspective of a planner, litigator and professional malpractice carrier. The panel provided practical tips for identifying, addressing and resolving red flags that can arise during representation. The program was organized by the North Carolina Bar Association.
