Deputyships come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, such as managing the lifelong care of children with brain damage, the support for young people with learning disabilities or the affairs for elderly dementia patients.
We have a team of highly skilled solicitors able to act as deputies for a range of different clients. They are well placed to handle a person’s assets, whether that is dealing with a multi-million pound compensation fund to provide therapy, housing and care for a severely disabled individual or trying to eek out much smaller sums of money to make sure someone’s rent is paid.
As experienced deputies they can take investment decisions as well as manage expenditure, ensuring everything is budgeted for and proportionate. They deal with every case sympathetically and involve other family members wherever possible. We can also support family members or close friends appointed as deputies.
Managing someone’s money and other assets, possibly over a lifetime, is no small task. However, we have developed a unique ‘fund for life’ plan that assesses the requirements of the person unable to make their own decisions and sets costs accordingly. Furthermore, the court assesses all our costs to ensure they are always reasonable.
