Court of Protection & Deputyship


We understand the importance of Court of Protection & Deputyship applications. We do everything within our power to make these applications simple and stress free for you, so you can concentrate on what matters most.

Helping someone who has lost the ability to make decisions

We understand the sensitivity and pressure that often surrounds the circumstances calling for Deputyship

If you are looking after someone who has lost the capacity to make his or her own decisions about their own care and treatment but has not made a Power of Attorney, then you will need to consider applying to the Court of Protection to be appointed as a Deputy under the Mental Capacity Act.
A Deputy would be a family member, a close family friend, another loved one or a professional, such as a Solicitor. Once approved, the Deputy is able to access the person’s finances in order to pay bills and invest for future financial stability.
We also support parents and carers in making plans to support children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, special educational needs or whom are disabled.

We provide expert advice and professional support

Taking the Deputyship application process off your hands

We will confirm that you meet the legal requirements to apply for Deputyship. We can then make this application for you, ensuring an accurate application and optimum processing time. In most cases, you will not need to attend the Court. 

We can also advise on other Court of Protection applications including obtaining permission for attorneys to make gifts, dealing with property sales, and making statutory Will applications.

Excellent client-handling skills.
