Court of Protection explained

It is not something most of us think about, but were you to suffer a serious brain injury and become unable to manage your own finances, how would you or your family cope?

It is likely that a Deputy would be appointed by the Court of Protection to manage your finances for you. Your Deputy will make arrangements with you for such everyday things as:

  • Paying your bills
  • Claiming welfare benefits
  • Investing money
  • Budgeting for your future

How we can help

At Potter Rees Dolan, we have a dedicated team who are experienced in dealing with a variety of clients in need of the services of a Deputy.

Our clients include:

  • Children with cerebral palsy
  • Adults with severe acquired brain injuries
  • Adults with learning difficulties
  • Elderly clients with dementia

We tailor our service to the specific needs of each client. We work closely with that client and listen to his or her family or carers to ensure everybody has a voice.

We offer the following services:

  • Acting as a professional Deputy
  • Providing support and advice to other Deputies (perhaps a family member or a friend of the client)
  • In conjunction with the Potter Rees Dolan welfare benefits adviser, we help clients to apply for relevant welfare benefits, local authority funding and NHS continuing care

Services for other solicitors

Our Court of Protection service is also available to other firms of solicitors conducting personal injury or clinical negligence claims.

We are happy to accept instructions to estimate future Court of Protection costs, whether or not we are appointed as Deputy. To do this, we draw on our extensive expertise and data that we have collected for over a decade..
