Specialist support in managing the affairs of elderly and vulnerable people

  • If you are responsible for looking after the interests of a vulnerable person, such as someone affected by a stroke or dementia, you will know that it requires trust and sensitivity.
  • Managing the affairs of vulnerable people requires solicitors whose empathy and dedication are just as important as their legal expertise.
  • We have a specialist full-time Court of Protection team to help you over long periods of time, in order to ensure that your loved ones are receiving the best support available.

Looking after a vulnerable person, whether it be the result of illness or accident, can be a difficult situation to manage. If you look after a vulnerable person, it is likely that you also manage their financial affairs. Similarly, if you are a member of the family of a child who has been left severely injured and therefore awarded compensation, you may need help with the organisation of the child’s day-to-day needs such as care, education, living arrangements and general welfare.

Managing the affairs of vulnerable people is a highly specialised area of the law, which is where our expert team can help. We can provide you with clear and practical support over a long period of time, to give you peace of mind that your loved ones are receiving the very best care and support.

What is elderly vulnerable legal care?

Elderly vulnerable legal care refers to legal support and advice for elderly individuals who are vulnerable, either due to age or health. This includes issues related to inheritance, wills, power of attorney, and protection from financial exploitation.
