Pagan Osborne Lawyers Publish Elder Client Book

Pagan Osborne lawyers Fiona McDonald and Lianne Lodge have published the second edition of the book The Elder Client: A Practical Guide.

The book, on sale at Amazon, Waterstones and other outlets, has been published by Thomson Reuters W Green.

The book is refreshed from first edition of the book which was co-authored by Fiona McDonald and Susan Duff five years ago. It was commissioned for an update after surpassing its sales target. In the second edition, Pagan Osborne associate Lianne Lodge, who heads up the legal company’s lateryears service, adds her practical experience to chapters.

Fiona said: “We are obviously delighted that there has been demand to update the content of the book. The field of elderly law and succession planning has had numerous new developments recently and it is encouraging that the elderly are receiving good focus. We hope the new edition of this text will become a go-to source for useful information for those working in this field.”

The book has now been refreshed and updated to take into account developments in legal areas relating to the elderly and is written in a way that it becomes an essential information source for anyone who is working, or wants to work, with elderly people including lawyers, social workers, charities and care home managers, as well as accountants, students, elderly people and their families.

Alan Bett, Market Manager at W. Green, said: “W. Green are delighted to publish the second edition of The Elder Client: A Practical Guide.  The first edition was heavily relied upon by those advising elderly clients requiring a wide range of financial and welfare matters, providing answers and guidance at their fingertips.  We are confident that Fiona and Lianne’s essential update will be gratefully received by solicitors, charities and those with the best interests of Scotland’s elderly in mind.”
