When someone is unable to manage their finances due to lack of capacity, the court can appoint a deputy to ensure their best interests are looked after.

Our specialist London team of Court of Protection lawyers have many years of experience assisting and supporting families in this situation. We can help – we always put the needs of our clients at the centre of all the decisions we make.

What is a deputy?

A deputy is someone who has been appointed by the Court of Protection to manage the finances of an incapacitated client. The deputy may be a family member, a close friend or a trusted professional.

With years of experience working with the Court of Protection, our sensitive and understanding Mental Capacity & Deputyship solicitors can help you make an application to become a deputy. Our specialist solicitors can also act as deputies for those unable to make decisions for themselves.

There is another type of deputy who will deal with Personal Welfare and they make decisions on medical treatment and how someone is cared for. Hodge Jones & Allen Deputyship Solicitors only act as Property & Financial Affairs Deputies.
