Court of Protection

We are the leading specialist Court of Protection practice in the UK, with the largest team of qualified lawyers.  

Our lower cost base allows us to pass on lower charges to our clients.  We offer the commitment, personal support and speed of response that is often lacking in larger firms and are regularly approached by clients who want a transfer of Deputy and are looking for the best Court of Protection Solicitors in Manchester and nationally.

Legal 500 2024:

‘They are excellent in helping people to manage their finances. They allow people as much freedom as possible to do so. They are careful when they spend client money but generous to client requests at the same time. They are a well-oiled machine and the treat each client as if they are the only client. I can highly recommend them.’

We approach our work in keeping with the Mental Capacity Act, seeking to always to empower and support our clients to participate in the decisions taken about their lives. 

As a Panel Deputy, Hugh and the team are often asked to take on difficult cases, for example where there has been financial abuse by relatives.  Our work includes all these areas - supporting both professional and lay (family) deputies and their families.
