Vicki Pearce

Vicki is a Partner and head of our Care Funding and Court of Protection Team based in Northampton. She is also part of the Private Client Team bringing her expertise and obvious overlaps into both areas of work to complement each other.

Vicki qualified as a Solicitor in 2004 and has extensive experience, specialising in the administration of estates, drafting Wills and helps her clients plan for inheritance tax and protect assets within their Wills and Property Trusts.  Vicki has a passion for working with people and families suffering from a mental incapacity.

She was instrumental in setting up the specialist care funding and Court of Protection team in 2013 which has doubled in size over the last five years. Vicki was appointed on the panel of professional deputies by the Court of Protection in 2015 and through this position has gained vast experience in dealing with difficult and challenging family circumstances and relationships; misappropriation; conflict, housing issues, safeguarding;disputes and contentious challenges and often draws on the wider expertise of the firm to resolve these matters on behalf of her clients. The Court regularly appoints Vicki as a person’s deputy when they do not have a suitable person close to them to act on their behalf in relation to the administration of all their financial Property and Affairs.

Vicki appreciates how important it is to obtain a good background to her clients’ circumstances, to know their wishes in order to ensure they will be followed and always strives to exceed the level expected by the regulatory body standards. Vicki is very thorough and likes to ensure that her clients fully understand how their affairs will be dealt with and the process that needs to be followed in all areas that she practices in.

She regularly advises clients of all ages and abilities on Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection applications and often visits clients in a variety of care settings and at home. Vicki believes that it is important to build up a strong relationship with her clients and their families/carers to help them through difficult circumstances and transitional times if moving into care. Vicki is able to look holistically at a client’s circumstances and the impact it can have on other family members. Vicki is keen to find solutions to the challenges that her clients face in order to make a positive difference.  She is also able to advise clients on all aspects of care home funding and challenges, including NHS continuing healthcare applications/challenges and local authority funding disputes.

Vicki is also a member of Solicitors for the Elderly and the Northamptonshire Dementia Action Alliance and works closely with charities such as Cancer Research UK. She is considered by her clients as both caring and knowledgeable. She also enjoys appearing on the expert hour at BBC Radio Northampton.
