Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection and Mental Capacity

Sadly there are times when a family member or loved one may lack the mental capacity to make important decisions. This is where our specialist Private Client team lawyers, experienced in dealing with the Court of Protection  can help.

  • We work closely with vulnerable adults or minors and their families to protect their best interests. We guide them through the maze of personal and financial matters concerning accommodation, benefits, care packages and more. We can assist either with appointing Deputies or acting as a Deputy to look after a persons affairs or make sensitive or important decisions.
  • We can help you plan for the future by creating a Lasting Power of Attorney. This allows you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf, in case you are unable to do so. While it may be a ‘worst case scenario’, it’s well worth being prepared for every eventuality. Whatever the situation, we will always provide clear, jargon-free advice that everyone can understand.

Trethowans’ Private Client team are recommended in the Legal 500 2022 UK Guide.

‘I have found Trethowans to be “head and shoulders above” other local firms in relation to the quality of service and the speed of their delivery and responses. Too often these are strengths that are not found together, and it is rare to find a firm like Trethowans which can consistently deliver speedy and quality service.‘
