We are pleased to welcome back Dhruva Patel to our Sevenoaks office following maternity leave with her daughter. Dhruva focuses on ‘Lifetime planning’ (Powers of Attorney, Deputyships, Wills & Estate Planning, Estate Administration and Trusts).
Wills are often something that a lot of us have on our ‘to do’ list. But, Dhruva tells us, it is not just a tick box exercise. “It’s about planning for the future,” she says. “Wills and Powers of Attorney may sound a bit dull, but they are absolutely vital the moment you acquire any assets or you experience a life changing event such as starting a family or moving on in your relationship”. There are so many nuances, especially where children and assets are concerned that it is important to make sure you plan with an expert.
Dhruva is passionate about why we need to consider the importance of Lasting Powers of Attorney. They allow you the opportunity to choose the people in your life that you trust the most to manage your financial affairs and health & welfare, if the situation arises where you cannot do so yourself (through illness or accident).
“It’s like an insurance policy,” she says. “You hope you’ll never need it, but knowing it’s there gives you real peace of mind.”
The team pride themselves on being family friendly and work alongside clients to help them, in the event unforeseen circumstances arise, achieve the stability they seek for the future. We believe building a strong relationship with our clients is key, and that involves transparency over fees.
“I want people to be conscious of the need to get in touch with us, to review the provisions they’ve made, following any change in their personal or financial circumstances” says Dhruva.
“I’m here to help. I go the extra mile and provide a personal service, it’s what makes me and the firm stand out in the legal world.”
