The firm has clients of all ages and this opportunity to support Northampton Filmhouse was particularly relevant for the team that specialises in care home fees and advising those caring for a relative or loved one. Having to make decisions for someone else, perhaps due to age, illness, or accident needs specialist advice as does acting for someone who has lost capacity, or perhaps needs help challenging care or care home funding arrangements.
Within the region, Wilson Browne Solicitors cover all areas of Private Client and Commercial law having offices in Northamptonshire and Leicestershire, operating from Northampton, Kettering, Corby, Higham Ferrers, Wellingborough and Leicester, working with individuals and businesses.
The firm employs about 160 people and is committed to supporting local arts, sports and charities. Having been named the Northamptonshire Law Society Large Law Firm Of The Year multiple times, the company is regularly called upon by local media to give insightful commentary regarding important legal matters.
Wayne Jenkins, Business Development & Marketing Director comments: “We have a strong track record of supporting the arts at a local level as part of a broader approach to supporting business, charities, the arts, grass roots sports and the community in general. It’s fantastic to be involved in this collaboration and to support something so relevant to our clients.”
Vicki Pearce leads the team that looks after the complex area of Care Home Fees, Deputyship and Court Of Protection. She added “The needs of those who require care, or perhaps someone to make decisions for them is something we understand all too well. All of our team are ‘Dementia Friends’ and we are passionate about giving expert advice in a down to earth and friendly way. Just as importantly, we are a team that genuinely cares about our clients and this tie-in is just one of the ways we can show our support.”
