From managing your loved one’s investments to making sure their bills are paid on time, we can guide you through every aspect of applying for and handling a Property & Financial Affairs Deputyship, giving you complete comfort over their long-term financial wellbeing.

Reporting an Attorney or Deputy

Need to report an Attorney or Deputy for abusing their position? Or are you looking to defend your position against an unwarranted claim? We can support you through every step of Attorney and Deputy reports to help you achieve the right result.
