Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA)
We assist clients in creating LPAs, empowering them to appoint trusted representatives to make decisions on their behalf in the event of incapacity.

We prioritise our clients’ interests and preferences, ensuring that their wishes are respected, and their affairs are managed effectively.

What our clients say
“I used to work in a bank many years ago along where Bowling is on The Broadway. We used to recommend Bowling to customers who needed any legal assistance. What stands out for me is the friendliness of Manal and her staff. You will receive a friendly and efficient service.”
Mr MP – Private Client
“I’ve used Bowling & Co since 2002 with my mortgage, my Will and Power of Attorney. They helped me cover all the things I needed to complete my documents. I found it comforting when they were able to answer all the questions I had, and they were very thorough and very professional solicitors.”
Ms CI – Residential Property and Private Client
“The client–solicitor relationship can be difficult especially if one part does not understand or appreciate the other. I liked (‘enjoyed’) that I had an honest working relationship with my solicitor at Bowling & Co.”
Mr CT – Private Client
“I started dealing with Bowling & Co in 2000 and have always found them very professional, friendly, and can execute a matter without any issues. Easy to make an appointment. Helpful, trustworthy and honest.”
Mr MY – Residential Property, Commercial, and Private Client
“My husband and I have used the services of Bowling & Co over the last 25+ years for the purposes of conveyancing, and my parents also used their services for conveyancing and for preparation of power of attorney documents and their wills. I also used them when my parents passed away, Bowling & Co completed the probate. I am pleased to confirm that I have had a positive and helpful experience on every occasion. I have no hesitation recommending Bowling & Co to others. If we need the advice or involvement of legal professionals again in the future, Bowling & Co will be our first point of contact.”
Mrs C – Private Client
“My experience was hassle-free, even in these pandemic times. Manal was friendly and always helpful, as was everyone at Bowling. I would definitely ask Manal for her help in the future for any of my legal needs. I am happy that my Will is in safe hands and that my son’s future is taken care of. Thank you.”
Mr P – Private Client
