Leading south east law firm Furley Page has appointed solicitor Scott Walker to its highly regarded vulnerable client team.

Scott joins one of the few firms in Kent to offer a specialist team with the experience and knowledge to deal with complex issues affecting the elderly and vulnerable.

The 38-year-old has acted for a range of clients in the private client sector and now specialises in elderly and vulnerable client matters. He offers advice on a number of issues, including Lasting Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection applications, NHS Continuing Healthcare, care fees, mental capacity matters, and Wills and Will Trusts.

As a Dementia Friend, Scott also supports the Alzheimer’s Society’s biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia by learning more about the condition and changing the way they think, act and talk about it.

Nicola August, Partner and Head of Vulnerable Client, says: “Scott has a very strong commitment to assisting in legal matters relating to the vulnerable client sector and is keen to focus on providing advice in this area. He’s a valuable addition to the team.”

Originally from the East Midlands, Scott achieved a law degree at Liverpool John Moores University and went on to gain a Diploma in Legal Practice with Distinction at The College of Law (now the University of Law).

After completing his legal studies, he worked in the North West and the Midlands for a number of years, gaining experience in all aspects of private client work. He relocated to Kent to complete his legal training and qualified as a solicitor in 2013. He now lives in Gillingham.

Prior to embarking on a legal career, Scott gained substantial commercial experience in finance and accounting, working in the manufacturing and insurance sectors.
