Business LPA Drafting

This is the 2024 Business LPA course complete with updates. Business LPAs allow business owners to protect their business. Without one, their business is at risk. If they lacked capacity and they didn’t have a business LPA, the bank could freeze their bank account, contracts or services might go unfulfilled, the business community would think twice about doing business with them. If they were a sole trader it could put them out of business.

To help your clients manage these risks you need to know how to draft a Business LPA.
