Lindsay joined the Boyes Turner Court of Protection Group in 2021, where she assists with the management of financial and personal welfare matters, primarily for clients who have been mentally incapacitated due to illness or injury.
Lindsay has expertise in advising clients on issues relating to mental capacity, best interests decisions and applications relating to deprivation of liberty. She has supported vulnerable adults to challenge their deprivation of liberty in care homes and has assisted several of them to obtain a move to less restrictive or more suitable accommodation.
After obtaining her LLB at University of Southampton, Lindsay studied the LPC at The College of Law (as it then was) at Guildford. She completed her training contract with a niche Child Law firm in Surrey, primarily representing parents in Public Law Children Act 1989 proceedings, where she continued to practice until the birth of her children, after which she took a short career break.
Lindsay returned to practice in 2019, retraining in the area of Court of Protection, which she has found to be both interesting and rewarding. She particularly enjoys having the opportunity to assist in improving the lives of clients whose mental incapacity means they may otherwise struggle to make their wishes and feelings heard.
