The Court of Protection cares for those who through illness, age or accident have lost mental capacity and have not made either and lasting or enduring power of attorney.
We are experienced in assisting friends and relatives of those who have lost mental capacity to apply to the Court of Protection for the appointment of a deputy.
For clients who are already patients of the Court of Protection we are experienced in advising their deputies thinking of asking the Court to make a statutory will for the patient.
Attorneys acting under either a lasting power of attorney or an enduring power of attorney from time to time need to seek the approval of the Court of Protection for particular transactions they wish to carry out. We can make the application on their behalf.
