Court of Protection and Deputyship

A Deputy may be required when an individual suffers loss of mental capacity and can no longer make decisions relating to their property and financial affairs or their health and welfare.

Our Court of Protection and Deputyship team provides support and advice to trade union members and their loved ones throughout the complex process of applying for Deputyship. We offer discounted rates to trade union members.

We have significant professional experience of working with trade union clients who have lost mental capacity, for example as a result of a brain injury, and have helped them and their families consider the options open to them.

Our Court of Protection Deputyship team is made up of specialist solicitors, who work closely with the lawyers running the personal injury case to provide families with a seamless service. We offer the reassurance that the most important decisions about your loved one’s financial affairs are being properly taken care of by experts.

We offer direct and immediate help to families who may be struggling with a number of complex issues – such as property, finances, health and welfare – at a very demanding time. This allows them to focus on the care and rehabilitation of their injured loved one.
