If a friend or a relative has lost mental capacity, you may need to apply to the Court of Protection for a deputy to be appointed to manage their affairs. These decisions are for issues involving the person’s property, financial affairs, health and personal welfare. 

 

The importance of Court of Protection

It is the responsibility of the Court of Protection to make important decisions – such as those relating to the management of finances – for people lacking the mental capacity to make these decisions themselves. It is imperative that a person’s best interests are always put first. We understand the importance of safeguarding financial affairs effectively, and our expert team is highly experienced in ensuring our clients’ welfare is always protected.

Excellent and professional service with clear explanations and guidance throughout. We can thoroughly recommend the firm and in particular Philippa Wright, Head of Wills and Probate.

A quick, efficient way to ensure your wishes are recorded for end of life. Good advice given and explained in a clear concise manner. Thank you.

Mr P

Very happy to have come here, especially dealing with Helen Green

Mrs L

Thanks for the work of your staff led by Maria. I would like to highlight the contribution of Nadya & Leona in these transactions. While Maria is often the one in the sunshine so to speak, it is through the background work performed by these two that allows this to happen.

Mr S

I have been completely satisfied with help given by Helen and feel that my affairs are now in safe hands.
