Adult Services

We understand your time and energy is best placed ensuring the well-being of individuals in your communities and supporting those adults who need your care, whilst ensuring that your services are aligned to their needs and run effectively and efficiently.

We can help you minimise your risks across your statutory duties and functions, and our broad-ranging team of public sector experts can support you across a wide range of areas, including:

  • Adult social care law
  • Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards
  • Guardianship & court of protection matters
  • Finance matters – including grants, fees and recovery
  • Direct payments
  • Coroners Inquests
  • Wills and Probate

We also have significant expertise supporting local authorities across all areas of public health functions and standards. For example, during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic we provided urgent and short notice advice to a large Council enabling them to take an important decision about the exercise of their powers and duties relevant to public health at a time when there were already restrictions imposed at a national and regional level.

Related expertise include: Social Housing, Conveyancing & Housing, Judicial Review & Procurement Challenges, Probate & Estates.
