Sara is a Senior Associate within both our Private Client and Compensation Protection teams. She previously worked alongside a Panel Deputy for five years, concentrating on property and financial affairs, going on to spend two years at a niche litigation firm, where she focused mainly on welfare disputes at the Court of Protection – acting mainly for family members and the Protected Person.
Sara’s client base ranges from concerned family members, care homes and domiciliary care providers as well as acting on behalf of the RWK Goodman Trust company in its guise as professional finance Deputy for many incapacitated individuals. These vulnerable people range from elderly clients with Dementia to young children who have suffered serious brain injuries at birth.
Sara is used to dealing with both contentious and non-contentious matters regarding property and financial affairs and welfare issues. Sara also has experience of managing cases at the Court of Protection which have a multi-jurisdictional element. In addition, Sara advises families on challenging CHC (Continuing Healthcare) funding decisions and failures of Local Authorities to comply with their obligations under both the Mental Capacity Act and Care Act.
