Unity Street Chambers - Bristol: A leading set of Barristers serving the South West and beyond


We have a dedicated team ready to advise on applications being made to the Court of Protection. This is a highly specialised area of law, dealing with the protection of vulnerable adults and children, where we often work in conjunction with our solicitor colleagues. We understand that working with the Court of Protection often means that urgent and immediate action is required. Here are just some examples of the sort of applications that we have recently been involved with:

  • Contested appointments made under Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Application to the Court for appointment of a Deputy
  • Lack of mental capacity
  • Dispute regarding management of finances
  • Making decisions under a Lasting Power of Attorney

The above list does of course only set out some examples of what we do. If you think that you may have to make an application to the Court of Protection, make sure that you contact Clair Wadden or Kate Brunton first so that you can have a free initial chat with one of our specialist team.
