Gift Making by Attorneys

The Office of the Public Guardian has published a practice note which can be found on the Ministry of Justice website and which provides some guidance on how the issue of gift making by attorneys should be approached. It is important to note however that it is simply guidance. Each decision about a gift must be considered on its own merits and the main test will always be whether it is in the best interests of the donor. Click on the link below to see the Guidance Note.
