We work together with the families and care providers for the client to ensure the safeguarding of our clients’ welfare and finances.

The Court of Protection
The Mental Capacity Act 2005 brought with it changes to the Court of Protection, which looks after the rights of people who lack the mental capacity to make their own decisions in relation to their financial affairs, assets and/or personal welfare. Our team of expert solicitors are here to advise, make appropriate applications to the Court of Protection, act as professional deputies, support lay deputies and facilitate financial transactions where necessary.
The legislation and regulations surrounding the care of a person who needs to be protected under the Court of Protection is complicated and time consuming if you are not already experienced in this area, for this reason we thoroughly recommend talking to a trained expert solicitor in this field to ensure that you tick all of the boxes, appropriately safeguarding the interests of the person who needs this assistance.
Passmores have considerable experience in this area, so if you would like to make an appointment to speak to one of our Court of Protection experts then get in touch with us today.
