We all have family members who, at some stage of their lives may need someone else to take decisions for them, be that managing their finances, deciding where they live or who to live with. We can help provide advice in this complex area and are sensitive to the issues involved.
The Court of Protection is a specialist court for all issues relating to people who lack capacity to make specific decisions. The work of the Court of Protection has expanded significantly in recent years and more and more people are finding that they need specialist advice in this area.
We also assist clients in completing and registering Lasting Powers of Attorney. These important arrangements can help avoid any need to make an application to the Court of Protection if they are put in place prior to an individual losing capacity.
