Powers of Attorney

It is reassuring to know that you have appointed someone you trust to deal with your affairs, both financial and health and welfare, should you be unable to manage your affairs yourself. We can provide advice on Powers of Attorney, as well as preparing and registering the documents.

It is important that you understand the implications of a Power of Attorney and what is involved in the granting of the document. Our experienced Private Client team can prepare Continuing and Welfare Powers of Attorney, and deal with the registration with the Office of the Public Guardians.

We also provide advice to individuals who act for someone as an Attorney, including the application of the appropriate legislation.
