Usually, once a claim has been settled this is the end of our involvement. However, there are certain cases that require our input and expertise after settlement has been reached.
In cases where the settlement monies are for a minor (anyone under the age of 18) or for someone without capacity (unable to look after their own affairs) the money will need to be looked after. This is done by setting up a Trust or working with the Court who holds the money until it needs to be released.
We have a track record of achieving several million pounds in settlement for clients over the past few years and in a number of cases these settlements have been awarded to children. Once a claim is settled therefore there is still work to be done, but the work changes from litigation to long-term planning.
TSP has the benefit of a broad spectrum of expertise across many of areas of the Law. This allows us to offer continuity of client care and legal advice in a number of areas such as
- Setting up a trust for a child
- Court of Protection advice
- Property Advice
- Making a new Will or updating an old one to reflect your change in circumstances
Of course every client has a different situation and therefore different needs; we will help you to identify the steps you need to take to take care of your and your family’s future.
