Court of Protection

The Court of Protection is a judicial body responsible for aiding those who no longer have the mental capacity to make decisions about their affairs.

The Court of Protection can make decisions relating to:

  • Health and Welfare.
  • Finances and Property.

It is essential that you seek the advice of a trusted solicitor who can advise and assist you with Court of Protection and Deputyship matters and the Mental Capacity Act. At Berlad Graham LLP, we ensure that all our clients, including elderly and vulnerable adults, are protected and listened to throughout their matter.

Deputyship Solicitor

In ideal cases, your loved one will have set up a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA). However, in cases where there is no LPA, you should apply to the Court of Protection to become a Deputy. Being a Deputy allows you to make decisions on your loved one’s behalf. Depending on the circumstances, a family member or close friend could be a Deputy. However, if this is not appropriate, it might be a professional person, such as a solicitor.

Our Court of Protection solicitors will take the time to fully understand your and your loved one’s situation, ensuring that your Deputyship application is completed to the highest standard, your wishes are met, and you are fully supported.
