Do you have a power
of attorney?

There are different types of Powers of Attorney, but we would recommend you make Lasting Powers of Attorney to ensure that your wealth and assets could be managed on your behalf if you are not mentally or physically able to do so yourself. This ensures that the people you trust would be able to manage your affairs on your behalf if you can’t.

Wills and Lifetime Planning

This can include Health and Welfare decisions if you lack the mental capacity to make your own decisions, as well as managing your finances. Further, business owners may prefer to have a Business Lasting Power of Attorney in place, to ensure that those suitable, and qualified, to manage your business can do so if you can’t. Without this, the business could fall into disarray without you there to lead it.

Deborah was very helpful. Very easy to talk to and highly professional. I can rest easy knowing no stone was left unturned and my wishes were met.
