Founded in 2012, JE Bennett Law is a successful and expanding business that retains it’s family ownership and values. The founder Jane Bennett has over 20 years’ experience as a private client lawyer, specialising in the law regarding vulnerable clients for the last 15 of those years. Prior to founding JE Bennett Law, Jane was a partner at two law firms in the City of London.
Jane is passionate about helping the vulnerable and made the decision to start her own practice to have the freedom to focus on just that. Specifically, she wanted to run a firm which could concentrate on the needs of the client, and have the freedom to grow that practice without the burden of expensive overheads. Today The JE Bennett Law team exceeds 20 staff, with 3 partners (all Legal 500 ranked) and have well in excess of 150 professional deputyship clients.
The team share Jane’s passion and pride themselves on offering clients real value and a truly personal service.
The firm’s core business is about helping private clients on matters regarding the Court of Protection; trusts for the vulnerable, and powers of attorney. Jane’s particular specialism is in acting as an expert witness in high value and catastrophic personal injury litigation claims regarding the role and costs associated with a professional deputy and related issues.
The firm acts for those who due to events in their lives/personal trauma, are limited in their ability to manage their own financial and health/care needs. We also advise their family members, who are often going through an extremely stressful time as a result of trying to fight for their loved one’s rights. This requires considerable expertise, empathy, and commitment to what is a growing and ever more complex practice area.
JE Bennett has a straightforward business ethos… the clients come first. The firm has a hardworking team ethic and is completely committed to providing a bespoke, holistic, caring, excellent and efficient personal service.
JE Bennett Law is a family run firm that prides itself on it’s friendliness, openness and empathetic approach. We are also really passionate about providing the best possible service for our clients. This means keeping a tight rein on spending and budget adherence to ensure very careful handling of our clients’ matters.
I would like to thank Jane Bennett for the expert help I received from her in a delicate matter surrounding Lasting Power of Attorney and the loss of capacity of a family member. Jane was able to draw on a wealth of specialist knowledge and experience both to guide me and, when needed, to act decisively. At each stage of the process, I have felt listened to, supported and treated with the upmost professionalism and warmth, not only by Jane but by all those I encountered at Jane Bennett Law.

"Sought the assistance of J E Bennett Law when seeking a Deputy Application, followed by a Second Trustee Application. The, advice service and support I received throughout was exceptionally impressive, leaving me reassured and confident that all was being done to expedite the applications and bring the matters to a timely and successful conclusion. No question or concern was too small for my solicitor Lorna who was always considerate and genuinely supportive. I would highly recommend J E Bennett Solicitors, especially Lorna.
