Emma Baker

Partner - Head of Department/ Solicitor

I am a solicitor and a Partner with over 16 years experience as a private client solicitor. I am head of the Private Client department.

A large part of my case load is looking after elderly and vulnerable clients, whether under Lasting Powers of Attorney or under Deputyship Orders. I look after a wide range of people from the very elderly in care homes to people who have head injuries and need help with their financial affairs. I help them with decisions that they may have to make at difficult times in their life or if they are no longer able to make decisions for themselves then I manage their affairs completely.

As well as working for people under Lasting Powers of Attorney and Deputyship Orders I also advise on applications for Lasting Powers of Attorney, Deputyships and registrations of Enduring Powers of Attorney. I advise on Wills for clients with a whole range of requirements including those with complex family situations and providing for disabled and vulnerable beneficiaries. I also advise on Trust matters for trustees and beneficiaries.

Accreditations

  • Full Member of STEP (the Society for Trusts and Estate Practitioners)
  • Member of Solicitors for the Elderly

Interests

I am married with three children, so when I'm not ferrying them around and clearing up after them, I enjoy going to the theatre and the cinema, art exhibitions and cooking. I am also Chairman of the local Scout group and occasionally find the time for the odd indoor cycling (spin) class at my local gym.

Personal Mission Statement

I am approachable and down to earth. I love working with people and I am good listener. All of these attributes allow me to make sure that I take time to understand my client's particular circumstances and provide the best advice, at sometimes very difficult times in their lives.
