COTA (WA) acknowledges the pro bono support of global law firm K&L Gates.
A special mention is made of their support for the Elder Abuse Symposium which was held at the Hilton Hotel in June 2020. K&L Gates engaged their global offices to undertake an important piece of work on the international legal frameworks in regard to elder abuse. This work was undertaken specifically for COTA (WA) and their report was delivered by Partner Adam Levine at the symposium. The report titled Legal Landscape of Elder Abuse Across International Jurisdictions has since been used in further research undertaken by the State Government on the prevalence of elder abuse in Western Australia.
Our gratitude to Adam Levine, Partner, Ben Kiernan-Green, Senior Associate and the K&L Gates Team.
