Lasting Powers of Attorney Solicitors.
Appointing an attorney can help you manage your affairs in the event you became incapable of making decisions about your assets and estate.
All families and circumstances are different.
You can trust us to understand your circumstances.
We understand all families and circumstances are different. We take the time to learn about your family relationships and can advise you as to who you should and should not consider appointing as an attorney.
A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows you to give someone you trust the ability to make decisions on your behalf.
Many people put off making a Lasting Power of Attorney because they think they are only relevant for older clients. However, none of us know when an accident or illness might occur that could leave us incapable, either mentally or physically, of managing our own affairs. No one has the legal right to look after your financial matters, or make decisions about your health and welfare, unless you have appointed them as your attorney.
We can advise you fully with regards to the process of making a Lasting Power of Attorney, when it needs to be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian and ensure that you understand the power that you are giving to your attorney.
We understand all families and circumstances are different and here at FBC Manby Bowdler we take the time to learn about your family relationships and can advise you as to who you should and should not consider appointing as an attorney. Your closest relative or friend may not necessarily be the best person to make decisions regarding your financial matters or welfare issues.
We also advise many of our commercial clients on making a Lasting Power of Attorney for business which is an important document that will ensure in the event of an accident or sudden illness your business is protected and continues to operate successfully.
If you or a family member loses the capacity to make decisions and does not have a Power of Attorney in place, it will be necessary for an order appointing a Deputy to be made by the Court of Protection. FBC Manby Bowdler has a specialist Court of Protection Team at FBC Manby Bowdler, able to advise clients on all aspects of Deputyship applications and Court of Protection services.

We were really pleased with Mr Fuller who dealt with our wills and Power of Attorney. He explained everything to us clearly and in detail, and was very helpful. He answered our questions and helped us to understand the full implications of both. We are very satisfied with the results from our meeting with Mr Fuller.
The thought of making a will filled me with apprehension but after our first meeting with Christina Polychronakis all fears were dispelled. Christina was excellent. She explained everything very clearly. The process was done exactly as we wanted. I would defiantly recommend Christina and FBC Manby Bowdler.
Excellent service. From the initial contact it was a pleasure to have Victoria dealing with this. Her patience and understanding installed a confidence in me that the right person was dealing with this matter. I would be very happy for Victoria to deal with any future requirements I may have.
Michelle Monnes-Thomas was an excellent ambassador for your company. She was very helpful in preparing my father’s new will, providing advice where requested and keeping us involved at all stages of the process.
