A Public law expert from Irwin Mitchell has been accepted as a member of Solicitors for the Elderly – a national association of lawyers who specialise in legal services for older people and their carers.
Yogi Amin, a partner in the public law team at Irwin Mitchell, is a nationally-recognised expert in providing advice and representation to the elderly and is experienced in a wealth of issues including mental capacity law and health and social care law.
The aim of SFE is to improve the knowledge and service provided on legal issues, and all members of the association are required to have spent a substantial amount of time working for elderly clients.
Mr Amin said: “I have specialised in legal services for the elderly for many years, and have represented individual clients, care homes and charities on matters involving the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, Mental Capacity Act 2005 and Mental Health Act 2007.
“I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with other specialists and to continuing my development in this area of law, so that I am able to give my clients and colleagues first-class legal advice.
“Elderly law is a field which is constantly evolving as the requirements of the increasingly elderly population change.”
SFE is an independent, national organisation of lawyers who are committed to providing the highest quality of legal advice for older and vulnerable people, their families and carers.
The association aims to improve the knowledge and service provided on legal issues including, tax planning, wills, enduring powers of attorney, long-term social and health care and other retirement issues.
