Associate in the personal planning team
I am an associate in the personal planning and management department specialising in Court of Protection matters. I advise professional deputies and individuals on all aspects and issues regarding deputyships, attorneyships and the management of the financial and property affairs under the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
Before joining Anthony Collins, I specialised in wills, trusts and estate disputes and contentious Court of Protection applications. In the Legal 500 I have been praised by clients for my ‘steady and calm approach and insight’. I am a full member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (‘ACTAPS’) and have contributed to the Elder Law Journal.
The Act is underpinned by the fundamental concept that everything must be done in the P’s best interests and enshrines the five core principle under section 1 of the Act as follows: “(2) A person must be assumed to have capacity unless it is established that he lacks capacity.
