Vulnerable clients and how to protect them is fast becoming one of the key areas we assist clients with. Mental capacity and how our society deals with people who have lost capacity or their capacity is waivering is a growing challenge in an ageing population.

Our view is that the legal profession is here to adapt and respond to that need. Here at Harrisons we have a dedicated department who deal with these issues.  We advise upon and create Powers of Attorney so that the preparatory steps are in place in the event of a loss of capacity.  We also deal with matters in the Office of the  Public Guardian  and  the Court of Protection when Court proceedings have become necessary

Our approach

Our approach is centred around our clients and their needs taking into account their particular circumstances.  We ensure that vulnerable clients are identified and protected.    It is our view that we will where appropriate engage with more general non legal initiatives when planning for end of life care to provide a holistic approach.
