Court of Protection & Mental Capacity Solicitors
The Court of Protection makes decisions on financial and/or welfare matters for persons who lack the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves. This could be as a result of severe learning difficulties, dementia, serious brain injuries and/or illnesses. The first and foremost duty of the Court is to safeguard vulnerable individuals from financial abuse.
Where possible, it is best to secure Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) while your loved one still has capacity. Our court of protection solicitors can assist with this, and you will not have to apply to the Court. If this is not possible, do not worry. Our experienced solicitors will advise you on your options and help you find the best resolution for you and your family.
