Expert advice from Court of Protection lawyers and professional deputies
The Court of Protection helps people who do not have the mental capacity to manage their own affairs. It has the power to make decisions for people about their property and financial affairs, or regarding their health and welfare, ensuring that their best interests are always met.
The Court can also give these powers to someone else, like a relative or close friend, who can manage their loved one’s affairs, normally on a long-term basis. If the Court gives these powers to someone else, they are called a deputy.
Our team of experienced Court of Protection lawyers can advise and assist in these areas, by supporting families in applications to the Court of Protection and by acting on behalf of people who lack capacity.
