Helping protect you and your business

Blake Morgan’s Power of Attorney solicitors offer expert and comprehensive advice on the preparation and use of Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) for business owners. Putting a business LPA in place means that your chosen attorneys can manage your company’s finances and sign key documents on your behalf if you are physically or mentally unable to do so yourself.

Our Power of Attorney solicitors will help protect your business in the event you were to lose mental capacity, become physically disabled, or if you planned to spend time abroad.

Covering issues such as who would manage the company bank accounts, approve invoices and contracts, and pay staff.

Main Areas Of Practice


Our expert Power of Attorney solicitors advise business owners on preparing and using LPAs for their personal and business affairs.

Property and Financial Affairs LPAs

This document allows you to appoint a trusted person or persons to make decisions about how your property and finances are managed when you lack physical and/or mental capacity. Our Power of Attorney lawyers will help you document decisions relating to the sale of property and the operation of your bank accounts.

Multiple Agreements

A Property and Financial Affairs LPA generally covers all of your financial affairs, including business interests. However, often, individuals like to keep their personal affairs separate from their business affairs and, in these circumstances, it is possible for our Power of Attorney solicitors to complete more than one LPA.

Business LPAs

When running a business, our Power of Attorney solicitors recommend that you make an LPA that focusses specifically on your business interests to ensure your attorneys have access to the company accounts and they have the powers in place to sign key documents if the need arises.

Conflict management

When making a business LPA, our Power of Attorney solicitors will ensure it does not conflict with provisions that may already be provided in, for example, a partnership agreement (for partnerships) or a company's articles of association (where you are a director of a company).
