Court of protection
When people are unable to make their own decisions because of a mental illness, other people may be required to make decisions on their behalf. If there is no Power of Attorney in place this is where the Court of Protection can help.
The Court of Protection protects the rights of people who are unable to make their own decisions relating to the management of their property, affairs, or welfare. Our solicitors have a wealth of experience dealing with the Court of Protection and are here to provide advice and guidance in this area.
You may be concerned about decisions that someone else is making on behalf of a loved one, or perhaps you are worried that a relative is no longer able to manage their own affairs. If this is the case, you can ask the Court of Protection to appoint a deputy to ensure that decisions are made in the individual’s best interests.
Our Court of Protection lawyers are committed to protecting the interests of vulnerable people and their families. You can talk to us in complete confidence. If you would like to find out how we can help you to use the Court of Protection to protect yourself or a loved one, please call us on 01756 799000.
