Assignment of CFAs 

I have spoken to three separate people in the last week re this issue.  Pre 01.04.13 CFAs which are now out of date (minor comes of age, capacity, death, transferal of instructions etc).  Recommended reading is:

Yes it’s a first instance decision, however no-one knows more about CFAs than the SCCO.  I would urge anyone who is taking on new cases, new members of staff with their own cases or has any of the above scenarios – to seek professional help.  Not a Doctor, but a contract lawyer, costs draftsman or Counsel.  Two heads are better than one!
