Court of Protection

When a person lacks mental capability, the Court of Protection makes decision on welfare matters for them. They can appoint deputies to act on their behalf or give someone permission to make a one-off decision. We understand how difficult and upsetting it can be when a loved one becomes unable to manage their own affairs. We have extensive experience of working with the Office of the Public Guardian, enabling people to be appointed as deputies, assisting deputies and dealing with disputes. Our professional team also act as professional deputies for a many number of clients and are well placed to guide you through the process.

Our friendly team will be able to assist you with a full professional deputyship service, or one-off advice or for ongoing support.

Our team are here to help you, so if you have any questions regarding this area of law,
please get in touch with us on 0161 480 6551 or contact us via our enquiry form.
