I am a Partner in the Court of Protection team, based in the Manchester office. I'm appointed by the Court of Protection to act as a professional deputy for clients who have lost capacity to manage their financial affairs.
The majority of my work involves acting as professional deputy for clients who have received multi-million-pound damages awards, either as a result of medical negligence or a serious injury. I work closely with both our Personal Injury and Medical Negligence teams managing interim payments until claims are settled.
After the settlement my role is to help clients invest their compensation in the best way, buy a property suitable to their needs, and put in place commercial care packages, as well as other financial matters. I am an expert in mental capacity and often assist Lay deputy’s with applications to Court and Statutory Wills.
I provide ligation support in the form of expert evidence, acting for both claimant and defendants.
I always wanted a job that involved working closely with people. The challenge of the law and the chance of working for individuals and families inspired me to become a lawyer and specialise in Court of Protection work.
Working with clients with a brain injury can be very challenging, but also incredibly rewarding. The most rewarding part of my job is seeing clients making progress, either living independently, engaging in brain injury rehabilitation or achieving their goals, no matter how small.
I enjoy running (which is probably more like jogging!) and spending time with family and friends. If there is any time left after running my children about, I love getting out into the garden.
