The Committee, which reviews and promotes improvements in law and practice for elderly clients or those with mental or physical disabilities, supports initiatives for solicitors who provide such services. It additionally prepares Practice Notes for solicitors on relevant issues, such as “Representation of individuals detained under the Mental Health Act” and provides evidence by way of written submissions and in person, such as to the House of Commons in relation to the Care Bill 2013, to the House of Lords Committee in relation to the review of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, and to the Office of the Public Guardian regarding digitalisation of the process for making a Lasting Power of Attorney.

Rankeshwar Batta, partner at the firm commented: "This is a major achievement for Sheree and for the firm as a whole. Her involvement as part of the Committee will help us to continue meeting the needs of our clients whilst utilising the teams' skills and expertise to influence top level policy and change, not just within our Private Client services but, increasingly in our Local Authority and Health and Social Care work."
