I work as a solicitor in Irwin Mitchell’s Court of Protection team helping deputyship and trust clients manage their property and financial affairs. This involves managing my clients’ daily and capital expenditure and also coordinating investments and estate/tax planning on their behalf. An important part of my role is to develop good relationships with my clients to ensure that I manage their affairs to suit their best interests.
I am experienced in making a variety of applications to the Court of Protection for both vulnerable and elderly clients, from emergency interim, and later full, deputyship applications (both lay and professional), to Statutory Gifts and Wills, to replacement of incapacitated trustees for property. These cases often involve more complex issues, for example – domicile, safeguarding, divorcing without capacity, deprivation of liberty and contested capacity assessments.
