Steel & Shamash in the News:

27th March 2017

Damian Cullen of our  Court of Protection Team, instructed by the Official Solicitor, acted for MN in an important case before the Supreme Court which raised fundamental questions as to the nature of the Court of Protection’s jurisdiction.  We successfully argued that the Court of Protection had no jurisdiction to order changes to MN’s care plan.  Janice Kaufman of Steel & Shamash was interviewed by the Solicitor’s Journal following the judgment being published.
