Our client’s estate included valuable properties in both London and the Republic of Ireland. Their two daughters had each made their own respective applications to be appointed as the sole deputy. Both daughters made various accusations towards the other, which included allegations of financial abuse.
Our team were appointed as professional deputy to act as an independent party, removed from the family dynamic. In order to deal with the Irish property, our team had to make a Wardship application to the Irish Court to be appointed to the role of Committee (the equivalent of a deputy under Irish law). This application has now been addressed by the Irish Courts and an order made confirming the appointment of our team as Committee so that our client’s financial affairs in Ireland may now be properly managed on their behalf.
