Professional Deputy Service

Our professional Deputies in Bristol are committed to providing practical, long-term support to those who have lost mental capacity.

Whilst it’s common for the Court of Protection to appoint a friend or family member as Deputy, not everyone has someone who’s able or willing to take on the responsibility and manage their affairs on their behalf.

Others may find the thought of managing a large sum daunting and prefer to give responsibility to a professional deputy. This is especially true in cases where loss of capacity has been caused by a serious accident or unexpected injury, such as a brain injury.

Our professional Deputy services

Our Court of Protection solicitors specialise in managing complex personal injury and medical negligence cases where loss of capacity has occurred. Dealing with an unexpected injury and complicated medical conditions is tremendously hard, especially if you’re also coordinating care with medical and support groups. But having a professional Deputy can relieve the pressure and be a significant help.
