We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded yet again for our commitment to the legal industry ensuring that our Mental Capacity assessments are the very best in field.
We have been awarded ‘Niche Legal Consultancy Firm of the Year (Mental Capacity Assessments)’ by ACQ5 Law Awards 2018.
This only serves to further galvanise TSF Consultants as being recognised leaders in the provision of mental capacity assessments.
Established in 2011, TSF is built upon the holistic core values that every person has the right to achieve all they can mentally, physically, spiritually and culturally. Through values of empathy, compassion and empowerment TSF ensure that everyone is treated with respect and dignity and supported to achieve their optimum.
Founder, Tim Farmer has over 25 years’ experience of working with individuals with reduced capacity, is a multi-award-winning expert witness and best-selling author. He is the creator of the CMSL principle for setting the Threshold of Understanding when assessing mental capacity, a committed member of Baroness Finlay’s leadership team for the National Mental Capacity Forum and was a contributor to the 2017 Parliamentary Review. In conjunction with this notable win, Tim himself was also named as ACQ5’s UK Gamechanger of the Year 2018.
These values and high standards have seen TSF carry out hundreds of assessments each year across England and Wales and internationally for those clients with UK based assets. They are also the reason TSF is considered the UK’s leader in the field of mental capacity assessments.
As innovators TSF have established a number of unique processes that have enabled us to identify the threshold of understanding and associated question set for every decision we are asked to assess.
In addition, our South West based team have also established our own internal quality governance team whose sole purpose is to ensure assessments and outcomes are of the highest quality and will stand up to legal challenge, the team are passionate about providing the most robust reports in the industry.
