If you have concerns that someone close to you lacks the Capacity to manage their financial affairs, Jackson Lees can help with the provision of ongoing assistance from a Professional Deputy. Working in accordance with the Mental Capacity Act 2005, we can offer the support vulnerable clients require. As well as enabling them to make their own decisions as far as possible, we can also ensure they receive appropriate legal advice.
Choosing a Deputy
When a person cannot manage their own affairs, a Deputy will need to be appointed to oversee these matters on their behalf. This is often a trusted family member, while in some cases a solicitor may be assigned this role. Our dedicated in-house team is led by Head of Court of Protection Jane MacGregor, a panel deputy of the Court of Protection Panel of Deputies. If you need assistance with your financial affairs, we can provide a comprehensive service that is tailored to meet your needs. Where you have elected a deputy of your own choosing, we can help them to carry out all the functions of their role effectively, giving advice and guidance where appropriate.
For help understanding Court of Protection rules, as well as practical guidance once a Deputy has been appointed, call Jackson Lees on 0151 282 1700. We will assess all aspects of your case in order to give you the most relevant, useful feedback possible.
