Court of Protection


Experienced court of protection solicitors to guide you through the process.

We advise clients on a variety of court of protection matters. The court of protection procedures are not straight forward and involve a lot of paperwork.

We are able to offer clear advice on the procedure, the options available to them and guide people through the process of obtaining the relevant order.

An individual who has lost mental capacity cannot create a Lasting Power of Attorney. The only option for the relatives of such an individual in these circumstances is to apply to the Court of Protection for an order appointing them as deputy of the individual’s affairs.

Clients in this situation often have a lot to deal with ensuring the individual in question is receiving proper care and all their needs are met.

We can take over and manage the whole application process to ensure that the matter is dealt with as smoothly as possible.

We can assist clients with the following:

  • Making an application to be appointed a deputy to make decisions regarding finance and property affairs on behalf on an individual.
  • Making one off applications to the court of protection regarding specific issues affecting an incapacitated individual.
  • Advising on the responsibilities and obligations of a deputy and assisting in the completion of deputy reports.
  • Making applications for a statutory Will including preparing forms and statements to be submitted to the court.
  • Advising respondents in applications for statutory Wills.
