Court of Protection

Court of Protection

Pendragon Chambers Court of Protection Team.

The Court of Protection is a vital arm of the judiciary, allowing for the affairs of the most vulnerable in society to be dealt with sensitively and properly. It has jurisdiction over the property, financial affairs and personal welfare of people who lack mental capacity to make decisions for themselves. It is responsible for determining disputes as to the registration of enduring and lasting powers of attorney, appointing new trustees, authorising certain gifts and the making of statutory wills. Members of Pendragon Chambers can act for claimants, relatives, statutory agencies, private bodies and the Official Solicitor.

We offer a wide variety of advocates who can combine the necessary skills for effective work in the Court of Protection. Our barristers advise in cases concerning welfare, financial and serious medical treatment decisions, the deprivation of liberty safeguards, nearest relative displacement applications and judicial review.
