SOLICITORS FOR LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY

  • While the future is impossible to predict, it is possible to plan for

    A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a means of planning so that your care, and your finances, can be managed in the way you would like, even if you’re not able to make decisions about these yourself. You can nominate a trusted attorney to act on your behalf, whether that’s someone you know like a family member or a close friend, or a solicitor.

  • A kind approach with an emphasis on client care

    Our solicitors are well-regarded in the region and we have an excellent reputation for both technical excellence and client care. We take the time to understand you and what’s most important to you so that we can ensure that your interests are fully protected and respected whatever happens.

    We know that this can be a complex and difficult process for many people, so we always take the time to make sure our advice is communicated clearly, with a patient and kind approach.

  • Capable of handling complex situations

    If you have high-value assets, a business, or off-shore elements to your estate, you can rest assured of our competency in handling complex situations. We are rated in The Legal 500 and Chambers High Net Worth based on outstanding client feedback, and count members of specialist body the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) among our team, so you can rest assured you’re in the best of hands.
