The Court of Protection is a specialist court which is responsible for individuals who lack the mental capacity to manage their own property & affairs or to make decisions about their welfare.
There are many reasons why an individual might have limited mental capacity (e.g. dementia, learning difficulties or as a result of an accident).
We provide expertise and experience to deliver high quality legal advice and representation on behalf of individuals with limited capacity across Somerset. Our work usually, but not exclusively covers:
- Appointing a Deputy or acting as a Deputy
- Lasting Powers of Attorney and Enduring Powers of Attorney
- One-off applications to the Court of Protection for matters such as gift applications, tax planning and the purchase or sale of property
- Statutory Wills and Trusts
- Community Care Advice

The Dementia Friends programme is the Alzheimer Society’s biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.
