Alexine Moran, based primarily in our Cirencester office, specialises in Court of Protection work. She is particularly experienced in preparing and registering Powers of Attorney and in submitting Deputyship Applications to the Court of Protection.
Alexine qualified as a solicitor in April 2011. She joined us in early 2013 from a Top 100 regional firm where she specialised in Serious Personal Injury Litigation.
Alexine finds her background in Serious Personal Injury particularly valuable when dealing with Deputyship matters and when preparing applications to the Court of Protection.
Alexine assists Christopher Mills, who acts as professional Deputy for a number of our clients. She and Chris work in tandem with others in their team to ensure the smooth day to day management of our clients’ financial affairs (managing millions of pounds) and property. She is in regular contact with those supporting our clients who often include friends, family, carers, case managers, support workers, therapists and others.
Alexine regularly applies for Statutory Wills for clients who have lost capacity. Instructions usually emanate from the Deputy for the individual who is unable to make a Will which would reflect their wishes. This process can be lengthy and can require very sensitive enquiries. It involves taking witness statements from family members and friends, gleaning as much information as possible from the individual lacking capacity, considering existing documents and notifying anyone who might dispute the Will at a later stage.
Alexine is experienced in dealing with sensitive matters in a professional and courteous manner. She has exceptional interpersonal skills and adopts a pragmatic approach to issues affecting our clients.
Outside work, Alexine enjoys spending time with her family, walking her dog, home crafts, cooking and travelling. She is fluent in German, and is learning conversational Swedish.
