Court Of Protection Barristers

Court of Protection

The Court of Protection is a specialist court, established in October 2007 for all issues relating to people who lack capacity to make specific decisions. The Court makes decisions and appoints deputies to make decisions in the best interests of those who lack capacity to do so.

Members of 7BR are instructed to undertake applications in the Court of Protection relating to the welfare of vulnerable adults, including issues of medical treatment and deprivation of liberty.

Given our expertise in cases involving children, particularly in public law cases, members of the team are extremely well placed to deal with contentious issues relating to best interests and where allegations of inappropriate care and/or physical ill treatment are raised, often against family members who are sometimes themselves elderly/vulnerable. We are experienced in dealing with sensitive family matters and contentious medical issues and, where possible and appropriate, seek to avoid further distress and anxiety by negotiating the right outcome.

We are able to assist in all aspects of the Court of Protection process, whether that be by advice pre-action, assisting in the initial application or through representation thereafter.

Members of chambers are also able to assist in applications to the Court of Protection relating to the property and financial affairs of persons without capacity.
