Our Power of Attorney solicitors provide expert legal advice when you need it most

Our Power of Attorney solicitors can help you plan if you are no longer able to manage your affairs owing to an accident, illness or old age.

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) allows you to appoint people you trust to make decisions and sign documents on your behalf. Our team of expert Power of Attorney solicitors advise on both types of LPA – the Property and Financial Affairs LPA and the Health and Welfare LPA. We also advise on Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPAs) and Advance Decisions.

Main Areas Of Practice

Our expert Power of Attorney solicitors advise on all aspects of preparing, registering and using LPAs and EPAs including:

Property and Financial Affairs LPAs

This document allows you to appoint someone to make decisions about how your property and finances are managed when you lack physical and/or mental capacity. This could include decisions relating to the sale of your house or operation of your bank account.

Health and Welfare LPAs

This document allows you to choose someone to make decisions about your health and welfare when you lack mental capacity to do so yourself. Our Power of Attorney solicitors help document decisions including where you live, what health treatment you receive, and can also delegate decisions about receiving life-sustaining treatment.

Advance Decisions

Sometimes known as a living Will, and often made alongside a Health and Welfare LPA, this document lets your family, carers and health professionals know your wishes about refusing life-sustaining treatment if you are unable to make or communicate that decision yourself.

Enduring Powers of Attorney

You can no longer make EPAs, but those made before 1 October 2007 remain valid. If the person who made the EPA loses mental capacity, it will trigger registration. Our expert Power of Attorney solicitors can advise on use of the EPA and assist with registration.

No power of attorney?

If a loved one becomes mentally incapable, and no EPA or LPA is in place, you may need to ask the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy to manage their financial affairs. Our Power of Attorney solicitors offer specialist advice in this area and full assistance with deputyship applications. Read more about our Capacity and Court of Protection services.
