When someone you care about loses the ability to look after their affairs, we are able to offer you the support both you and they require. If they are unable to enter into a Power of Attorney it may well be that you will have to apply to the Court of Protection in order to have the legal authority to assist them with their affairs.
We have a specialist team who provide a comprehensive service to those whose financial and personal affairs need to be overseen by the Court of Protection.
The partner in charge of our Court of Protection department, Tanya Thomas acts as a professional Deputy for many clients and acts closely with family and carers to ensure the best interests of the client are always represented. Tanya also specialises in Mental Health Law and is a Mental Health Tribunal Judge, dealing with all aspects of mental capacity on a daily basis.
Our team are also able to assist clients with Deputyship applications and the ongoing responsibilities to both the patient and the Court of Protection.
We have recently acted for and on behalf of both vulnerable adults and children at Court of Protection hearings. We regularly receive referrals from other Solicitors and Local Authorities to represent clients and have a strong reputation in this field.
Gotelee’s breadth of experience enables us to deal with all aspects of a patient's care from personal injury claim to deputyship application, from the purchase of a purpose built property to comprehensive planning of tax, financial and trust matters.
