Our specialist and approachable team of Court of Protection, Trust and Will solicitors can work with you to help your clients pre and post settlement to put their affairs in order.

Not only can we assist adult clients with capacity, but we can also assist minors and protected parties (via their litigation friend) to put appropriate measures in place.

We offer peace of mind with clear advice and practical solutions. Whether it’s establishing a Trust for the first time, dealing with the Court of Protection or acting as a professional trustee / deputy, our team are here to help with trusted, tailored advice.
