KAREN, BOYES TURNER CLIENT
As a senior associate - solicitor in Boyes Turner’s highly respected Court of Protection team, Alexander’s specialist expertise is in helping people who have suffered severe brain injury to manage their financial affairs.
Alexander’s expertise and understanding of the needs of clients with diminished mental capacity enables him to support for Boyes Turner’s severely disabled and brain-injured clients and their families through the financial, Court of Protection and deputyship aspects of their personal injury and medical negligence claims. His clients also come to him through referral from other solicitors or directly as individuals and families seeking help with ongoing deputyship and financial management after their claims have concluded elsewhere.
Alexander assists clients with all types of Court of Protection applications, including the appointment and replacement of deputies. He helps clients who require a personal injury trust with the trust application and administration. He prepares professional witness statements in relation to deputyship and private trust costs, to enable clients to recover those costs through their medical negligence or personal injury claim. Boyes Turner’s serious injury and deputyship clients benefit from Alexander’s ongoing assistance as he liaises with employment lawyers to provide advice and maintain up-to-date best practice in relation to carers’ contracts and the client carer employment relationship. He provides investment reviews of independent financial advisors (IFAs) and fund managers.
As a specialist in deputyship and trust management for seriously disabled and brain-injured individuals, Alexander supports clients in budget forecasting to ensure the compensation award will continue to meet the client’s ongoing needs. Where the client’s interim or final award is to be applied to the purchase or adaptation of a property, Alexander assists the client through the process through liaison with architects, surveyors, case managers and therapists.
Alexander was a keen songwriter before the recent birth of his son. He hopes to pick up his guitar again soon but for the time being he is concentrating on developing his nappy-changing skills.
