When someone lacks the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves, they need someone else to act on their behalf.
When dealing with the affairs of someone who has lost their mental capacity, it’s vital to work with experienced and knowledgeable Court of Protection solicitors.

It’s important to work with a lawyer when dealing with the Court of Protection. Given the complexity of the legal framework surrounding mental capacity issues, a solicitor can help safeguard the rights of a protected person. This is particularly the case when a person has lost their mental capacity.
During a case, there may be a need to submit evidence or attend a court hearing. A solicitor can advise on the best course of action throughout the process, help to gather the relevant evidence and represent the best interests of the protected person in court. We also have excellent relationships with expert witnesses and other professionals who can provide independent evidence and expertise to support the case.
