None of us want to think that, one day, we might not be well enough to look after ourselves and our affairs. But when it comes to planning for future mental incapacity, Gillhams’ lawyers make a rather daunting process easier to navigate.
We have a team dedicated to putting in place Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs). These are legal documents which appoint a person (an “attorney”) to look after the welfare, money or property of someone who can no longer do this for themselves.
Our Power of Attorney lawyers deal with all types of issues, from the most complex arrangements to more straightforward instructions. But there’s one common theme: every case needs to be handled with expertise, clarity and sensitivity. Leaving nothing to chance, our team makes sure that clients’ wishes are informed and properly recorded.
And we make sure that our clients’ wishes are respected too. Because we don’t just advise clients who want to draw up Powers of Attorney. We also work with their attorneys, to help them understand LPAs and their duties under them. We’ll even act as attorneys ourselves if our client wants us to.
And, because we’re Court of Protection experts, we’re experienced in the formalities of registering, interpreting and enforcing LPAs. Any conflicts are handled quickly and with certainty by our disputes team, so family members, attorneys and others can get on with caring for the people who count most in all of this.
Our services include:
- advising clients on their options
- drafting and registering Lasting Powers of Attorney
- registering Enduring Powers of Attorney
- advising attorneys
- acting as attorneys under Property and Affairs LPAs
