Happy New Year - our first newsletter of 2021! Throughout this year we will continue to bring you news and developments relating to the charities sector.
Kirsty will succeed Kate Jackson, who left the Firm on 9th July, and will continue to develop the health and welfare work, building on the achievements and the excellent national reputation of the team secured under Kate’s leadership.
ACS remains one of the few firms nationally with the expertise to advise on both property and finance issues, and health and welfare matters. Kirsty’s extensive experience in working with adults and children with mental health or mental capacity difficulties will strengthen the Court of Protection team’s holistic services and support to anyone who might lack the capacity to make decisions for themselves.
Kirsty is also a member of the Law Society panel of accredited mental health tribunal solicitors and represents clients who are detained (“sectioned”) or otherwise subject to compulsory powers under the mental health legislation.
Sheree Green, Court of Protection Lead at ACS said, “We are delighted that Kirsty has joined us and we look forward to seeing our Court of Protection health and welfare service go from strength to strength in Kirsty’s capable hands.”
Kirsty said, “I am very proud to be joining Anthony Collins solicitors to work in such a respected team. This is an exciting opportunity and I am committed to meeting the individual needs of our clients, and furthering the reputation of the team.”
