Protection of Vulnerable Clients

Anne Stephenson is a co-founder and member of Solicitors for the Elderly Ireland which is an independent national association of solicitors and barristers concerned with improving the availability and delivery of specialist legal advice to older and vulnerable people, their families and carers.

Unfortunately, situations can arise where clients (or family members of clients) may need to provide protection for vulnerable individuals.

Stephenson Burns Solicitors have dealt with many situations where this is the case, and consequently has extensive experience in dealing with the following matters:

    • Drafting a will so that a vulnerable/mentally incapacitated beneficiary may be protected
    • Wardship including not only taking instructions for and preparing the documents required for application for wardship but also liaising with not only family members but the relevant medical practitioners/geriatricians.
    • Power of Attorney including general/specific powers of attorney and the preparation and registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney together with advising the donors of powers of attorney on their legal rights and the attorney on their rights and duties
    • Having Foreign Enduring Powers of Attorney registered in Ireland
