Lasting Powers of Attorney
Covering either or both, health and welfare and financial affairs, a lasting power of attorney provides a way for a nominated party to act on your behalf when you lack the capacity to do so.
Often these documents are associated with older people or those with an illness, but they are equally suited to all individuals as once registered they only become active as required.
We can provide help and advice regarding both documents to ensure you and your loved ones best interests are properly catered for.
Court of Protection
Disputes regarding mental capacity can be difficult for family members, health care professionals and most importantly the individual themselves.
The Court of Protection provides a specialised environment for solving such disputes and ultimately providing decisions on what is indeed in the individual concerned best interests.
We can provide our help and expertise both prior to an application to the Court of Protection and throughout formal court proceedings where required.
