About Laura Wares

I was educated at the University of Kent gaining a degree in Law in 2014. I gained my LLM Research Masters relating to the area of adult social care in 2017.

Having worked in the Community Care group since July 2014, I focus on matters connected to adult social care in the Court of Protection and also advise on a range of other community care law issues.

I played a central role in developing and delivering Care Act training in respect of ordinary residence in Spring 2015 to key clients and I also played a key role in the organisation of our annual Adult Social Care Conference.

My wide range of experience includes s21A MCA DOLS challenges, s16 MCA Personal Welfare applications and Re X applications, as well as providing advice on preparing statements and evidence in Court proceedings generally. I provide bespoke advice on more unusual Community Care issues when they arise.

I completed the Legal Practice Course in 2021 and qualified as a solicitor in October 2021.

Client testimonials

“I am writing in praise of your support. As someone in the firing line of an ultra-aggressive legal team for the first time in my life, this was a traumatic and, at times, upsetting process. You were at my side, dispensing wise and calming counsel throughout. You have been readily available when crises occurred, have been a wonderful listener and, in the end, we reached an outcome that was highly satisfactory for our school and its pupils. I cannot speak highly enough of the way that you handled this case, and I thank you and your firm for the support you gave me. Being a chair of governors, sworn to confidentiality, can be a lonely business! You kept me sane.”
Chair of School Governors
“You’ve been incredibly helpful with this. Thanks for always replying so promptly and for being a star.”
Private Sector Town Planning & Development Consultancy
“The experience has been really top end. Rather than just offering the options, they have given some real solid advice on the best route. It's a good business 'partnering' approach.”
Kent Fire and Rescue Service
“Their employment advice has always proved to be sound. I’ve worked with lots of different lawyers in London boroughs and. I’d also say that Invicta Law is the most solution-focused.”
