Court of Protection

Mental incapacity should never compromise a person’s right to a safe and secure future.

At Gillhams we have a team of specialist Court of Protection solicitors who help look after the needs of people who can no longer do this for themselves. By applying to and representing clients at the Court of Protection – the court dedicated to people who are mentally incapable – our team works towards getting the right financial, property and health and welfare provisions in place.

We advise clients on the options and guide them through the process. We’re calm and we’re thorough. We’re recognised for what we do, too. Partners Russell Caller and Hina Tailor are two of only sixty-three members of the Office of Public Guardian Panel of Deputies across England and Wales. That means they can be appointed by the Court of Protection to act as a deputy for a client, actively managing an individuals’ income, assets and benefits and sometimes their health and welfare arrangements too. Backed up by an experienced team, it’s a reflection of just how well we know this complex area. And that’s why we’re useful to have on your side.
