Child Care - Larcomes : Larcomes

Big enough to specialise, small enough to care.

Child Care

If you have an issue that you need to discuss with one of our specialist child care lawyers, please contact our child care department who will be happy to take the time to explain to you in an easy-to-understand way any legal processes or jargon that comes up.

Patience and understanding are the key requirements when dealing with children. Our children’s’ solicitor, Mark Tooley, approaches each case with a level of understanding only achievable by specialising in Child Law. He is a member of the Law Society’s Children Panel thereby recognising his experience and expertise in representing children.

The department represents guardians, children and parents in public law proceedings, including case, supervision, secure accommodation, wardship, special guardianship and adoption.

The Court of Protection team at Larcomes works closely alongside the child care team. The team has considerable expertise in applications to the Court of Protection for the appointment of a deputy, acting as professional deputy, lasting Powers of Attorney and care provision and entitlement to legal aid.
