Court of Protection
The Court of Protection was set up to deal with all issues relating to people who lack mental capacity to make decisions themselves. Part of the role is to help protect and manage the property and financial affairs of people with mental incapacity to prevent them from being exploited or denied what is rightfully theirs.
This can cover situations including where there are no family or friends to take on such a responsibility and cases where there may be a family conflict, a financial issue or where Social Services are involved. It can also include complex cases that relatives are not willing or able to deal with.
We are one of the most experienced firms in the south of England for this highly specialised area of work. We can assist you if somebody close to you requires the help of the Court of Protection. Partner, Jonathan Gater has acted in his professional capacity as deputy and attorney for a number of years and has a wealth of personal experience and commitment to this area of work.
Although based in Berkshire, we have recently been appointed where individuals are resident in other counties, including Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex.
- Apply to have a Deputy appointed
- Act as a Deputy or act for an appointed Deputy
- Apply for a Statutory Will
- Manage all financial affairs and set up personal care arrangements as needed
- Apply for authority to deal with a one-off specific issue
We understand that all Court of Protection cases are unique. Different court powers will apply depending on how substantial the individual’s assets are when they become incapable.
