Prettys' Odyssey - Summer 2019

Summer 2019

Hello and welcome to Prettys' Odyssey Newsletter for Summer 2019. 
Odyssey is our members' club for clients and we hope this newsletter will help you keep up-to-date with developments in the law which may be of interest to you.  

In this edition Emma Woollard from our Estates Team brings you a comprehensive round up on why we recommend all of our clients consider making a Lasting Power of Attorney including types of LPA, what’s involved and the alternative if you don’t have an LPA in place.  We hope you find this thought provoking.
Our guest contribution comes from Brewin Dolphin who help us understand the pros and cons of cash and equity ISAs.
Finally we also include an update from the head of our Personal Injury team, Louise Plant in which she brings us up to speed on the recent changes in bereavement awards in personal injury claims. 
As ever, if you would like further advice on any of the issues mentioned, please contact us on zhodge@prettys.co.uk
With best wishes to you all for a fabulous Summer.
