Court of Protection and Trust Solicitors

Our COP & Trust Solicitors team can help you with your deputyship and LPA applications. We can also be your point of call if you need to deal with any challenges that looking after a vulnerable person may bring.

We are here to assist to deputies and attorneys with their duties when looking after a loved one. We will ensure that you are up to date with your reporting duties to HMRC and the Court of Protection (OPG). We are also mindful that substantial financial decisions may need to be made. We always ensure that professional and independent financial advice is sought.

Apart from assisting deputies and attorneys, our specialist solicitors can also act for you in their professional capacity. Having a professional attorney or deputy could protect your best interest and safeguard your money for your needs.

Get in touch if you are thinking of having a Lasting Power of Attorney prepared. If you have a doubt about your loved one’s mental capacity, our team would also be happy to prepare a deputyship application for you.

Trust Arrangements

A trust is a legal arrangement which comes into effect when a ‘settlor’ places money, land or other assets in the hands of trustees. The trustees are responsible for managing the property for the benefit of a person or a group of people (‘the beneficiaries’) and to act in accordance with the wishes of the settlor.
