Louise Courtney


Louise joined Moore & Tibbits in October 2012 whilst studying for the Graduate Diploma in Law.  Whilst working as an independent advocate for a local charity, Louise worked alongside Debbie and the Court of Protection team.

Louise has extensive knowledge of social care and continuing health care assessments, having supported people through eligibility assessments for the past six years.  Louise completed the Graduate Diploma in Law in June 2013 with a Distinction, winning the Sweet & Maxwell Vocational Law Award.

Having over 13 years experience working with and supporting older people through life changing events and challenges, Louise believes that it is really important to identify that person's needs in the context of their life as a whole and not just one problem.

Her particular areas of expertise include:

  • NHS Continuing Healthcare funding, dealing with retrospective applications and appeals and also representing families who encounter difficulties securing funding in their home and are being pressured to move into a Nursing Home.
  • Mental Capacity law - particularly regarding best interests and deprivation of liberty.  Louise will often attend multi-disciplinary meetings and support families through this process.
  • Paying for care
  • Complaints and disputes

The Green Paper that has been promised since March 2017, aimed at tackling concerns about the affordability and sustainability of social care, is due at any moment (we are told…).

      But whilst the delays continue, it is those needing care, their carers’ and families that are bearing the costs, financially and emotionally, of the current fragile system. The Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman has reported a year on year rise in complaints about social care and according to their latest annual review, this is now the second largest area of complaints that they deal with.
