With over seven years’ experience managing of Court of Protection deputyship cases Sadaf specialises in managing the financial, health, and personal welfare aspects for clients of different ages and backgrounds who can’t manage their own affairs due to mental incapacity.

Multilingual, and fluent in English, Danish, Urdu, and Punjabi, she is able to communicate effectively with a diverse client base, using her legal expertise and caring approach to provide effective and tailored support.

Joining from GN Law and based in London, Solicitor Colm Bourke also brings 7 years’ experience working in the Court of Protection and mental health law to Simpson Millar’s growing team. A specialist in health and welfare matters and mental health law, he is passionate about helping and assisting vulnerable people.

Welcoming the pair to the team Simpson Millar’s Head of CoP Melanie Varey, who is also Co-Chair of the Executive Committee of the Court of Protection Practitioners Association (CoPPA), said: “Our team is made up of some of the leading experts within this specialist practice area, and we are proud to be known for going above and beyond for our own clients, as well as many others through our involvement with various panels.

“I am confident Sadaf and Colm will be a real asset to the team and will prove invaluable in providing our clients, many of whom are very vulnerable, with sensitive, empathetic, transparent and forward-thinking legal solutions. It is a real privilege to have them on board.”
