Safeguarding Your Wealth

Vulnerable & Elderly

Money can be a comfort in times of need, but managing family wealth can become too great a challenge as we age or need to focus on other parts of our lives.

Our private wealth lawyers specialise in the services for the elderly and vulnerable, including:

  • Naming a power of attorney to make decisions on your behalf or for those of an elderly individual
  • Defending your position as power of attorney if your decisions are being questioned
  • Applying for court permission to undertake actions that are outside of your remit as power of attorney or deputy
  • Defending or challenging matters of financial abuse of the elderly

Whether you’re seeking support for a family member or simply preparing for your own future, you can trust that we have the experience and understanding to deal with any situation that arises.

Advice For Attorneys & Deputies

Our private wealth solicitors can advise attorneys and deputies on their roles and responsibilities. We also support individuals who believe an attorney or deputy might be acting outside of their given authority. 

In addition to providing expert legal advice, we can also act as attorneys or deputies if there is no-one willing to take on the role.

Sometimes it’s necessary to apply to court of protection on behalf of an attorney or deputy for permission to undertake actions that are outside their remit (for example making gifts from the incapable individual’s assets). We can assist you with these applications.

We can also advise on care fee funding options (local authority funding, NHS funding or private paying).
