Power of Attorney Disputes

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that allows a person to appoint someone they trust (their 'attorney') to make decisions about their health, welfare and finances when they no longer have mental capacity.

Abuse of this power involves the named attorney disregarding the wishes set out in the LPA, and can include financial abuse such as failing to pay bills, making false credit applications and making excessive gifts to other people.

Disputes of this nature are particularly challenging and the requirement to act quickly in order to resolve matters and protect vulnerable parties is paramount.

If you suspect that someone is misusing their power as an attorney, or if you are facing allegations about your conduct as an attorney, we can help.
