Powers of Attorney

Protecting the vulnerable

Giving you the power to care

Creating a Power of Attorney can be an excellent way to protect the vulnerable people close to you. We can offer expert advice to help you successfully apply to the Court of Protection and get the powers you need.


Powers of Attorney let you manage the affairs and make decisions on the behalf of a vulnerable person. If you believe someone is at risk of personal or financial abuse, having a Power of Attorney for property and financial affairs or health and welfare can be an excellent way to protect them, and having one can ensure that they don't become vulnerable to such abuse.

At Giles Wilson we have a great deal of experience approaching the Court of Protection on behalf of clients to make an application for either kind of Power of Attorney. Our team, led by Melinda Giles, a Panel Deputy for the Court of Protection, will work closely with you, providing support and advice and keeping you updated every step of the way.
