Court of Protection

The Court of Protection is responsible for making decisions relating to the management of finances and other affairs on behalf of people who no longer have mental capacity.

When an individual no longer has, or has never had, the capacity to manage their property and financial affairs, it is not possible to put a Lasting Power of Attorney in place. Instead, an application needs to be submitted to the Court of Protection to gain approval for someone to be appointed as the individual’s Deputy.

At Cohen Knights, our team of specialists are pleased to provide a holistic service, offering informed information and advice on applying for, and correctly managing your deputyship.
