Capacity and powers of attorney

We offer the support needed when you or your family members are unable to manage their financial and legal affairs due to age or illness.

Our lawyers can assist on the preparation, registration and use of lasting powers of attorney (LPA) and on the implementation of existing enduring powers of attorney (EPA).

We advise attorneys on activating a power of attorney, and on their powers and obligations as an attorney.

Our lawyers can also advise on advance decisions (the provision and withdrawal of medical treatment, also known as living wills), and welfare issues including the provision of care in both hospitals and care homes.

We understand that this is an area which requires sensitivity and we will guide you through the process to ensure that it is as smooth as possible.
