Gemma Eason named Head of the Court of Protection department
We are delighted to announce that our Court of Protection Solicitor, Gemma Eason, has been promoted to Head of the Court of Protection department.
The appointment comes after the retirement of Eric Morris, the current Head of Court of Protection and Founding Partner, at the end of March.
Tim Woolford, Head of Personal Injury Trusts, said;
“Gemma has made a very impressive start to her career at OMM and this is reflected by this thoroughly well-deserved promotion to the Head of the Court of Protection Department.
Eric Morris, Founding Partner and current Head of COP, will be a hard act to follow but I have every confidence in Gemma’s ability to continue to expand and develop this crucial area of work for the firm. I wish Gemma every success in her new role”.
Gemma said of the news;
“I am absolutely thrilled to have been promoted to Head of the Court of Protection department. I definitely have a hard act to follow with Eric but I am focused on being able to continue Eric’s brilliant work, with the support of a great team.
Court of Protection work is extremely rewarding and I continue to be overwhelmed by the achievements of the clients that we support, as well as their strength. I am excited for the future of our Court of Protection team and to continue to watch it grow.”
Gemma qualified as a solicitor in 2011 and joined the firm in February 2018 as a solicitor in the Court of Protection Team.
Gemma specialises in the management of an individual’s property and financial affairs, including personal injury damages through the appointment of a Court of Protection Deputy where a person no longer has capacity or through a Trust environment.
As part of her role, Gemma can also assist in helping a person who does not have capacity put a Statutory Will in place to ensure that their estate is distributed in accordance with their wishes.
Gemma is able to offer support where needed in all aspects of a person’s finances.
Gemma begins her new appointment on April 1st 2019.
We wish to congratulate Gemma and wish her well in her new role.
