Profile/Experience

Neil joined Lanyon Bowdler in May 2014 from national law firm Linder Myers LLP. He originally attained an BA (Hons) in English & Drama before retraining and qualifying as a solicitor in 2005. 

Neil heads up the department and specialises in Court of Protection work and mental capacity issues affecting both the older client and those who lack the capacity to manage their affairs due to personal injury or clinical negligence. The team deal with a wide range of Court of Protection matters, including deputyships, the authorisation of gifts, property transactions and wills and contested powers of attorney.

The team is also one of the very few in the region able to advise on the management of personal injury and clinical negligence awards and act as expert witnesses on Court of Protection costs. Neil also has a particular interest in the protection of vulnerable adults against financial abuse and has successfully acted in several complex cases resulting in the removal of deputies and attorneys.

Outside of work, Neil’s interests include walking, photography, genealogy and learning Welsh.
