Attorneys and Deputies

Members of Chambers are able to advise on the issues that arise during the currency of a power of attorney or deputyship. They also appear in the Court of Protection in applications relating to the appointment and removal of attorneys and deputies, and the administration of the affairs of the person for whom they have been appointed.

Some of this litigation is non-contentious, but other cases involve contested questions about the capacity of the donor to give the alleged power, the suitability of the proposed attorney or deputy, or the conduct of the attorney or deputy whilst in office.

Our members have extensive experience of such cases, and they advise and represent attorneys, deputies, and others concerned in the care of a person who lacks capacity.
