Attorney not required to live in P’s jurisdiction

25 September 2015

Must a person be barred from acting as an attorney if he or she lives outside England & Wales? No says Senior Judge Lush in the case of DGP Law v DGHP (2015 EWCOP 58)

Senior Judge Lush referred to ” …technological advances in communications, such as online banking, digital reporting, mobile phone, email and skype, and cheaper air travel as a result of a proliferation of budget airlines.”  And concluded (amongst other things) that “In my judgment, the fact that someone lives outside the jurisdiction should not be an impediment to their appointment as a deputy if, in all other respects, they are the most suitable candidate to be appointed and their appointment is in P’s best interests.”
