The MV difference
We help both individuals and business entities establish powers of attorney suitable to their unique needs.
For personal requirements, making a power of attorney ensures that your wishes are respected if you are one day physically or mentally unable to make decisions for yourself.
We are committed to collaborating with you, understanding your concerns and wishes upon your potential incapacitation and adapting a plan for how your attorney will act and carry out your wishes.
A company power of attorney can be made to authorise someone to act on behalf of your company and/or sign certain documents on behalf of the company.
If you are the sole director of your company, this is particularly important as it will ensure someone else can make decisions on behalf of your company and sign documents in the event you become unable to do so.
Failure to have a company power of attorney in place may mean the operation of the company comes to a grinding halt if a sole director becomes incapacitated.
Our expert team specialises in drafting and preparing powers of attorney, providing a holistic and tailored service to ensure your power of attorney fits in with your estate planning objectives.
Our services include preparation and registration of power of attorney, revocation of powers of attorney, enduring powers of attorney, medical powers of attorney, and preparation of enduring guardians.
We can also assist with applications to the guardianship tribunal if your loved one has become incapacitated and you need to make decisions on their behalf.
Having a well thought out power of attorney in place can also help with protecting you from elder abuse.
