In a country where the fastest growing population is the elderly it is vital that their personal and property affairs are protected. If the worst happens and a person loses mental capacity then decisions about them and their affairs will be taken out of their closest friends and relatives hands by the Court of Protection. The Court will appoint someone to administer that person’s affairs and they will have no say in it.

It is vital to be prepared for the worst before it happens. Our specialist solicitors can advise on all aspects of protecting the elderly and vulnerable, including: Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, mental capacity, Court of Protection, care funding, trusts and tax planning.
