Powers of Attorney

"Did you know? You can grant a friend, family member, professional advisor or solicitor powers to make decisions on your behalf and in your best interests."

Godwins Solicitors LLP can advise you on existing Enduring Powers of Attorney and if you need to put in place Lasting Powers of Attorney to enable others to speak for you.

Should you face health issues in the future, you’ll want a person, or people that you can trust to make decisions on your behalf. You may need someone to make a decision about your health and day to day living arrangements, or to help you deal with bills, savings/investments, property and other financial affairs.

We can help you choose the right Attorney(s) to manage your finances, property and welfare issues, ensuring the appropriate restrictions and levels of authority.

Individuals within Godwins Solicitors LLP are able to act as your Attorney. In fact, we’re a smart choice, because of our wealth of experience in protecting our clients' best interests.

Godwins Solicitors LLP can help outline the duties of attorneys, oversee implementation and handle registrations with the Office of the Public Guardian.

Step-by-step guidance will help you safeguard your affairs for the future.

You may wish to change your Attorney or file an objection as an attorney or a donor. Following registration, Godwins Solicitors LLP can offer ongoing guidance to donors and attorneys. This could be if you have appointed a partner you are no longer with, or you believe that somebody’s Attorney is not acting in their donor's best interests.

Godwins Solicitors LLP are also experienced at making applications to the Court of Protection in respect of Deputyship Orders and Gift Applications.

People: Fiona Leeson (Head of Department), Andrew Neal, Alan Cowgill, Fiona Fox, Selena Coleridge, Emma Dean, Sophie West and James Phipps.
