Court of Protection

The Court of Protection deals with issues concerning people who may not have the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves. It is the judicial body responsible for making decisions relating to the management of finances and other affairs of individuals who lack mental capacity to do so themselves.

When caring for family members and loved ones, it is essential their best interests are put first. In certain circumstances, family members and loved ones may no longer have the mental capacity required to make important decisions regarding their finances. In this instance, Bowcock and Pursaill’s Court of Protection solicitors can help; we offer help and advice about applications to the Court of Protection.


If a person who does not have an enduring or lasting power of attorney in place becomes unable to manage their own affairs due to lack of mental capacity, it may be necessary to appoint a deputy for them. A deputy is a person appointed by the Court of Protection to manage the affairs and make decisions on behalf of the incapacitated person. Our solicitors can act as a Deputy and provide independence and peace of mind in looking after that person’s affairs.
