Court of Protection Matters

Our expertise in this complex area extends to:

  • Once an appointment has been made by the Court of Protection, advising the Deputies as to how to properly fulfil their role and reporting obligations to the Office of the Public Guardian.
  • Making applications to the Court of Protection for gifts, Statutory Wills (a new Will for a person who lacks capacity), codicils and settlements;
  • Supporting families in contentious litigation in the Court of Protection in relation to Deputyship matters and Lasting or Enduring Powers of Attorney.
