Prior Conduct Declared
Christine King declared she had been subject of an SRA investigation resulting in a rebuke.  The SRA concluded that Ms King had been reckless when preparing an application for two Lasting Powers of Attorney in that she had accepted instructions from someone other than her client without her client’s authority; and she did not ensure that her client was aware of and/or understood the implications of the LPA.

The Professional Conduct Panel imposed a warning as to her future conduct.
