Putting the affairs of a vulnerable person in place
If you need to make a will on behalf of someone who lacks the capacity to do so, Giles Wilson can provide expert advice and representation, approaching the Court of Protection on your behalf.
A statutory will is a method of making a will on the behalf of someone who lacks the mental capacity to do so. But unlike a normal will, an application needs to be made to the Court of Protection.
If a vulnerable person you know is at risk of dying without a will, we can approach the Court of Protection to make a statutory will. Our experienced team, led by Melinda Giles who works with the Court as a Panel Deputy, can give you the advice you need, keeping you up-to-date at every stage and helping to ensure that your loved one's wishes are carried out as well as possible.
