Acting as Deputy or Attorney

For some people, their personal circumstances might mean that they do not have anyone that they feel they could trust, or who they could ask, to act as their Attorney. For some families they might not feel that they have the time (or the inclination) to take on the role of deputy.

We act as Professional Attorney and Deputy for many of our clients and have procedures in place which mean that we can do this in a cost effective way so that it is not prohibitively expensive for people.

If you are appointed as a Deputy or Attorney for someone, it can often be difficult to know what you are obliged to do. We can help, whether it is helping you complete the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) Deputy Report from each year, or advising you on whether or not you can make gifts as an Attorney or Deputy.
