Periodical Payment Order or Lump it?

CPD: 3 Cost: Free Venue: Edinburgh: Faculty of Advocates Mackenzie Building

The Scottish Courts are to be given power to impose periodical payment orders. Alteration to the method of fixing the discount rate, the impending legislative requirement to obtain actuarial advice and the perennial uncertainty of life expectancy all point to the need for both parties to consider whether to seek or resist a PPO in larger claims.

This seminar will consider the proposed legislative changes – the practicalities of PPOs and their security, indexation and life expectancy. Leading speakers include financial consultants Ian Gunn and Richard Cropper from Personal Financial Planning, economist and specialist in Human Resource Management Professor Victoria Wass of Cardiff University and actuary Dr John Pollock.

This seminar will be of interest to all personal injury and medical negligence litigation specialists.

The seminar will run from 9.30am to 1pm and will provide 3 hours of CPD.

Numbers are strictly limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis
