Court of Protection
The Court of Protection makes decisions for individuals who have lost the capacity to manage their finances or welfare.

We can support you to ensure you make the best of what can become an upsetting legal situation.
Trusts in wills can be very useful to ensure your assets are protected and managed the way you wish. They can be used to protect property or to provide financial support for children, with trustees overseeing the management of these.
