Powers of Attorney

Powers of Attorney are very useful and important documents, but they are also very powerful and open to abuse, so it is essential that you take expert advice before deciding what to do. We have a wealth of experience, both in creating powers of attorney and acting as attorneys, and are therefore able to give impartial, practical, advice to both donors and attorneys in this sensitive area.

Where a power of attorney is already in place, whether it be an ordinary power of attorney, enduring power of attorney or lasting power of attorney, we can review the arrangements and advise whether, in your capacity as donor or attorney, you ought to be taking any action.

To find out more about Powers of Attorney, what your options are and how the documents can be used in practice, please get in touch. We are happy to give initial advice over the telephone (0113 227 0298) or by email, free of charge.
