Professional Deputyship and Trustee services
Acting as a Court of Protection Deputy or a professional Trustee can be challenging, especially if you are managing the often complex issues of your clients personal injury litigation. Because Deputyship and Personal Injury Trusts are our key focus, we can really help you. Dealing with complex family circumstances, complicated medical conditions and budgetary matters can put great pressure on a Deputy or Trustee, particularly if you are new to the role, dealing with other pressures of work, or working alone.
Taking on the role of a Deputy or Trustee brings significant responsibilities and an obligation to comply with the commitments given to the Court of Protection in the Deputy Declaration or the obligations placed on a Trustee by the Trustee Act. Budget management with a long term management strategy is vital to ensue that your client’s compensation or other wealth will be there to support them throughout their lifetime. Choosing the right advisors whether it be for care provision, investment, a tricky employment issue or a contract dispute is a vital part of that management process. Taking the wrong course of action or failing to act could have a significant impact on your clients future financial security.
