  • Overview

    Elderly and vulnerable client law

    Not all of us prepare for a situation where we cannot make decisions. The best advice is to plan ahead for the future, to know who will make decisions for you, what those decisions will be and when they can be made.

     Not everyone plans ahead and even the best-laid plans go wrong. Circumstances change or relatives fall out, and there is a crisis that needs to be resolved.

    Our areas of expertise

    Our experienced team of lawyers is here to help.  We offer a wide range of services for our elderly and vulnerable clients including:

    • Preparing and advising on Lasting Powers of Attorney for both financial and welfare decisions, as well as advance directives (Living wills)
    • Dealing with the registration of Lasting and Enduring Powers of Attorney
    • Problem Powers of Attorney and making applications to the Court to remove clauses that prevent the Power being registered
    • Acting as attorneys and deputies, dealing with the day to day administration of a client's property and affairs 
    • Advising on and handling applications to the Court of Protection where the Court needs to make decisions, or where there is a conflict, including applications for gifts and statutory wills
    • Advising on and handling welfare deputyship applications
    • Advising attorneys and deputies on their rights and responsibilities
    • Advising on and preparing wills and trusts providing for vulnerable dependants
    • Advising on issues of legal authority for decision making, capacity and best interests
    • Advising on the financial aspects of care including local authority funding, financial planning and welfare benefits and working across legal boundaries with other professionals where required.

     We have one of the largest specialist Court of Protection teams in the country, offering a unique combination of expertise and resources to deal with a range of work from planning ahead to complex care regimes for clients in their own home. Our clients include children with complex care needs, adults with learning disabilities or acquired brain injuries and elderly clients with dementia as well as their relatives and carers.  See our case studies for examples of how we have managed to assist some of our elderly and vulnerable clients.
