Living wills lawyers

Living wills allow people to make legally binding decisions about their healthcare treatment ahead of time. We provide in-depth advice to clients, their carers and families on the considerations and choices available when drafting a living will.

Living wills, in which people set out their wishes regarding their future health care, have become increasingly popular.

If you feel strongly that you would not want to receive treatment in certain circumstances, this will make your decision legally binding. Your instructions come into force only at such a time as you no longer have the capacity to make such decisions for yourself, or to communicate your wishes.

We provide in-depth advice to elderly clients, their carers and families on the considerations and choices available and have drafted a number of precedents in this field of the law. With offices around the world, and many lawyers qualified in two or more jurisdictions, we are able to advise on any cross-border issues that may arise, for example if you live in a different country from the one in which you were born, or where you were granted lasting power of attorney.
