Lasting Powers of Attorney and Deputyship

We can assist with your Lasting Powers of Attorney, so that you can plan for your future and ensure that you have a say in who handles your affairs if you are no longer able to do so on your own.

How can we help?

The purpose of Lasting Powers of Attorney is to allow you to decide who you would want to deal with your Property & Financial affairs, or your Health & Welfare in the event that you are no longer able to do so on your own. Should you ever become incapable of dealing with your own affairs and you do not have a Lasting Power of Attorney, then someone who you might not have chosen yourself could end up dealing with them on your behalf

We can take you through the process of choosing your Attorney, advising on how it can be used, drafting the Lasting Power of Attorney and registering it with the Office of the Public Guardian.

If, however, you have a relative or friend who needs assistance with their affairs, as they do not have the mental capacity to do so themselves, they already may lack the necessary capacity to make a Lasting Power of Attorney. We can help and advise you on making an application to the Court of Protection to be appointed as their Deputy. A Deputy’s role is similar to that of an Attorney, but they are appointed by the Court of Protection.

The Court of Protection and Office of Public Guardian work closely together to supervise and monitor Attorneys and Deputies. We can advise you in your dealings with them and advise when you might need to seek their input.

Do contact one of our lawyers in the Private Client department on 020 7228 0017 and they will be happy to assist with the preparation of Lasting Powers of Attorney, or to make an application to become a Deputy.

Firmwide

Highly recommended. Took all of the strain and stress during conveyancing and explained everything clearly and concisely.

Family & Divorce

Over the period I found you to be professional, assured, confident and well-prepared dealing with the technical and complex. Sometimes issues were almost forensic. This was complimented by your ability to understand the personal anxiety that a client experiences as the process takes different directions and help with an empathetic approach which was much valued.

Family & Divorce

Your great patience was much appreciated, your lovely approach to people made me feel like a friend rather than a client- that makes the trauma of divorce easier to get through. Thank you again for everything.

Child Care

Despite your busy work schedule, you always made our case at the top of your priority list, you kept us calm and soothed our fears. Without your wonderful advice and your firm’s legal experience, we would not have the outcome we had. I would not hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone who needs a brilliant solicitor.

Child Care

I will never forget the feeling when I heard the outcome of the court ordering my children to be returned home. I cannot thank you enough for your assistance. Your legal expertise, professionalism and attention to detail went above and beyond my expectations throughout the course of my case. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Child Abduction

I just wanted to thank you for all the time, effort and meticulous attention to detail regarding my case over the past year or so.  You are always prepared to go the extra mile, working long hours and your ability to recall the smallest and often most significant details amongst a wealth of facts in my highly complex case never ceases to amaze me.  I appreciate all you have done and the manner in which you conducted my case and liaised with me throughout. It was very reassuring to have you on my side.  I do not know what I would have done without you.
