Mental Incapacity and the Court of Protection
Adults have the right to make their own decisions, but sometimes an accident or illness means it is not possible.

If you need the legal right to make decisions for a loved one who does not have an LPA, our solicitors can help you apply to the Court of Protection.

We will ensure you receive the level of compensation you need to return to a quality of life as near to the one you enjoyed before the accident as possible. We can often work on a 'No Win, No Fee' basis.
Wills and probateOur wills and probate solicitors can help you to create a will or review an existing will. It is important that your will is up-to-date so that it reflects your current wishes. If you are the executor or administrator of an estate, we can support you through the probate process with as much or as little help as you need.

Our commercial litigation lawyers understand that disputes can be damaging to a business. We take every possible step to resolve disputes out of court to protect your company's reputation and keep costs as low as possible.
Our employment lawyers support businesses of all sizes. We advise on employment contracts, disciplinary and grievance procedures, settlement agreements, how to prevent claims of unfair dismissal and discrimination and much more. We also defend employers who have claims brought against them, including representation at an Employment Tribunal.
Managing your business
We provide legal advice for both established companies and start-ups. Our advice covers employment contracts, health and safety, regulatory compliance, joint venture agreements, data protection, patent law and every legal aspect of managing a business.
