Mental Capacity

We have been supporting vulnerable children and adults and their families for over 30 years.

In particular, our solicitors are experienced and knowledgeable about all aspects of working with clients who lack mental capacity and their families. This includes elderly clients making provision for a future in which they may not be able to make decisions on their own behalf, and with other clients who may have mental or physical conditions that mean they cannot act on their own behalf. We are especially experienced in supporting clients with mental health issues and their families.

Protecting you

If you feel that you are no longer able to manage your affairs, or are concerned about someone else in this position, then our Court of Protection team can offer specialist, sympathetic support to you. We can help you to establish the appropriate protections, whether you are concerned about someone with mental or physical incapacity or are an elderly person who would like to make provisions for the future.

Our wills and probate team can help you with the establishment of tax efficient wills and trusts, including personal injury trusts or other trusts to protect the interests of vulnerable clients.

Another means of protecting your financial and personal interests in the future is the establishment of effective Powers of Attorney. We can advise on all aspects of Powers of Attorney, including challenging an established POA if you are concerned that someone’s best interests are not being properly protected.
