Thanks to all those who voted: Michael Mylonas QC, Legal Personality of the Year.
15th March 2019
Congratulations to Michael Mylonas QC who won Legal Personality of the Year at the LexisNexis Awards for his work in a run of crucial cases, including securing a ground-breaking decision where the Court of Protection permitted the emergency extraction of sperm for fertility treatment from a man who had suffered a catastrophic brain injury, through an innovative application of the Mental Capacity Act to allow the consent form to be signed on his behalf, and a case in which the Court of Protection approved gifts of more than £7m from the estate of an incapacitated testator. It is thought to be the largest gift ever approved by the CoP in such circumstances.
Michael was one of a stellar shortlist for the award: many thanks to everyone who participated.
