Court of Protection
“A highly regarded set for Court of Protection work, housing a strong bench of dedicated junior barristers.”
(Court of Protection, Chambers UK Bar 2019)
We have a strong reputation for our expertise in the full range of Court of Protection matters concerning property and affairs. Our experience encompasses the making of statutory wills, gifts and inheritance tax planning; the sale or other disposition of property; disputes relating to the appointment and removal of deputies and attorneys; difficulties resulting from the incapacity of trustees; and all manner of other issues within the Court’s jurisdiction.
A number of our barristers also advise on personal welfare issues such as choice of home, contact and capacity to marry.
We regularly act for attorneys, deputies, friends and family members, and can analyse cases from a wide variety of perspectives.
