FOLLOW WRIGLEYS:

Wrigleys specialise in helping litigation specialists with the finances and day-to-day needs of people who have been injured.

Clients have different reasons for needing our involvement:

  • Deputyship - Some may lack the capacity to deal with their own affairs and for those people we can act as Court appointed deputy to ensure that their needs are met and that the management of their finances works in harmony with other important aspects of their lives.
  • Health & Care -  Some clients are reliant on means tested funding of one sort or another and we can advise about appropriate types of trust and act as trustee.
  • Trusts -  Some clients are children who are likely to have mental capacity at the age of 18 but who need trustees to manage their finances and the wider aspects of their affairs until they reach that age and in the vast majority of cases to carry on assisting them after the age of 18.  Many parents are concerned about what will happen when an 18 year old has a potentially large amount of compensation under their control.  We find that by having a trust in place and involving the young person as part of that process, they are much more likely to embrace the trust, see the benefits it brings and keep the structure in place at the age of 18.

Often professionals are unsure about the correct route to take. We can advise you on the options, explain the pitfalls and guide you to the most effective solution.

All these matters are dealt with in detail in the menu opposite.

Members of our team regularly speak at professional conferences and write articles on personal injury trusts, vulnerable beneficiary issues, Court of Protection and care fees issues, including via our B2B blog: www.courtofprotection.com.
