Court of Protection

If someone you love lacks the mental capacity to look after their own property and financial affairs, our Court of Protection solicitors can help.

People may lose capacity because of a brain injury, birth injury, dementia or learning difficulty. Our Court of Protection solicitors can provide expert legal advice and support when you need it most.

A genuinely personal approach

Our dedicated and expert team is focused first and foremost on building personal relationships and making sure you and your loved ones are comfortable with us.

We have a track record of dealing with all Court of Protection issues and are ranked in both UK Chambers 2017 and Legal 500 as a top firm for Court of Protection.

If your loved one does not have an attorney

If your loved one or friend has not got round to appointing an Attorney under a Lasting Power of Attorney and no longer has capacity to do so, there is nobody to manage their affairs. If this is the case, an application to the Court of Protection (Court) to appoint a Deputy must be made. Without this, nothing can be done with their property and financial affairs.

The only course of action is to have someone appointed as their Deputy in order to manage their affairs. Until the Order appointing the Deputy is made, nothing can be done with an empty property and there is no valid legal way of accessing the elderly client’s bank accounts to pay bills, care home fees and deal with their financial affairs in general.

Linder Myers can support you with this.

Managing the financial affairs

Our specialist team is experienced in dealing with managing the affairs of elderly clients who no longer have capacity.

People may lose capacity because of dementia, an age-related condition, learning difficulty, stroke, or a fall resulting in a brain injury. If you are not sure whether they have lost capacity, already have an Attorney or need a Deputy, we can help.


The advice given is always good.
