Appointing a Court of Protection deputy to manage the affairs of someone who lacks mental capacity is intended to ensure that the needs of that vulnerable person are met and that their best interests are protected.
However, those close to a vulnerable person may not always agree about the actions a deputy is taking or even over who should take on the deputyship. These types of Court of Protection deputyship disputes can be damaging for families and especially for the vulnerable person at the centre of the dispute.
Our Court of Protection solicitors offer a sensitive, practical and highly effective approach to deputyship disputes. We can help to find a positive way forward that protects the interests of the subject of the deputyship and respects their intentions.
With strong skills in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), we can typically resolve Court of Protection deputyship disputes out of court, allowing you to achieve a positive outcome faster and at a lower cost. However, where court proceedings are required to protect a vulnerable person, we can support you in taking the necessary action swiftly and decisively.
For initial advice on resolving a Court of Protection deputyship dispute, we offer a 30-minute consultation for a fixed fee of £95 + VAT or an hour at £150 plus VAT.
