Regional Partner & Head of Court of Protection
Thackray Williams LLP
I joined McMillan Williams in 2012 and since qualification have specialised in all aspects of Private Client work. I am a full professional member of Solicitors for the Elderly.

I acted for an attorney who was being investigated by the Office of the Public Guardian for incorrectly dealing with his father's finances. The Office of the Public Guardian wanted him removed as an attorney so that he could not deal with his father's financial affairs and also health and welfare decisions. The Court decided that the attorney should continue to act with his father's health and welfare and appointed him Deputy together with a partner of the firm so that he could continue to act in relation to financial affairs. This was an excellent result for the family and also, an unusual decision of the Court which the senior judge of the Court of Protection stated was not to be used as a precedent. He also mentions this case when speaking at training courses for other solicitors. (Office of the Public Guardian v Marvin)
Outside work, I spend most of my time with family, entertaining my young daughters.
