Care Funding and Court of Protection Teams




Vicki specialises in the administration of estates, drafting Wills and helps her clients plan for inheritance tax and protect assets within their Wills and Property Trusts.

Vicki appreciates how important it is to obtain a good background to her clients' circumstances, to know their wishes in order to ensure they will be followed. She then helps her clients through, what can be perceived as legal jargon, to ensure her clients fully understand how their affairs will be dealt with.

She regularly advises clients of all ages and abilities on Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection applications and often visits clients at home or within care facilities. Vicki believes that it is important to build up a strong relationship with her more elderly clients and their families/carers to help them through a difficult transitional time if moving into care.

She is able to advise clients on all aspects of care home funding and challenges, including NHS continuing healthcare applications/challenges and Local Authority funding disputes. Out of the concluded Local Authority funding disputes for deliberate deprivation, Vicki has so far taken on, she’s achieved a 100% success rate in helping clients challenge a funding decision.

Vicki is also a member of Solicitors for the Elderly and often works closely with members of the charities Age UK and SERVE. She is considered by her clients as both caring and knowledgeable and is able to put clients at ease when embarking on difficult decisions.

  • Doing business in Ukraine: turning point for the currency control in Ukraine

    One of the most hotly discussed topics in 2019 is currency control liberalization in Ukraine.The currency control liberalization was one of Ukraine‚Äôs priorities under the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. At the beginning of 2019 the National Bank of Ukraine (hereinafter the ‚ÄúNBU‚ÄĚ) approved and promulgated all long-awaited regulations, serving as the basis for a new liberal¬†system of foreign currency control. The new¬†currency control¬†system will be launched on 7 February 2019, the same day as the Law of Ukraine¬† On Currency and Exchange Transactions¬† becomes applicable. The changes are aimed at deregulation, facilitating cross-border transactions with foreign currency and expanding the list of available foreign currency transactions.

  • Merger Clearance Matters

    The United Arab Emirates (the UAE ) promulgated legislation to specifically address the regulation of competition (being Federal Law 4 of 2012, or the Competition Law ) several years ago but until recently, it has been the case that the requisite implementing regulations and processes were not in place. This is no longer the case. Not only have the much anticipated implementing regulations been issued, the UAE Ministry of Economy (the Ministry ) (being the regulator in charge of administering the UAE competition regime) has now formed the required committee and issued the anticipated guidance and forms to allow concerned parties to make merger clearance submissions to the Ministry where required to do so pursuant to the Competition Law.
