Powers of Attorney

Power of Attorney brings great comfort knowing that someone you trust is ready to handle your affairs at any time. We can help you make the necessary arrangements.


If you become incapable of managing your own affairs or making key decisions, not even your spouse, civil partner or business partner has the automatic right to make decisions on your behalf.

Our personal solicitors will work with you to appoint someone of your choosing to have Power of Attorney so that person can manage your property and financial and/ or health and welfare decisions in the future if necessary.

Without a Power of Attorney, it becomes necessary to apply to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order.

This is an expensive and frustrating procedure – find out more here.

This can so easily be avoided by putting the necessary arrangements in place.

Our personal solicitors in Martlesham Heath near Ipswich will help you make a Power of Attorney, which is tailored to your circumstances. We can also work with attorneys, providing essential guidance on their role, rights and duties, and they can come to us for ongoing advice.

To make life easier for you, we offer fixed fees where possible and our solicitors are happy to visit you at home.

Wherever you are based in East Anglia, let our personal solicitors in Ipswich guide you through this important and very personal process.

Contact us, we are here to help.
