Managing the assets of a vulnerable person across borders
Someone who has lost the mental capacity to manage their finances may well hold assets – such as investments, property and shares – in different parts of the world.
If you’re looking after their affairs, it can be complicated and difficult to get financial institutions in other countries to recognise a Lasting Power of Attorney or Deputy order. Our specialist Court of Protection solicitors can help you by co-ordinating and dealing with these assets.
In the same way, if the person lives abroad but has assets in the United Kingdom, we can help you obtain the suitable authority to deal with banks, pension providers and other financial and legal institutions. We have experience in of doing this for clients around the world including New Zealand, the USA, France, Eire, India and Spain.
