Court of Protection
Court of Protection Barristers
Our barristers undertake work in the Court of Protection and have significant experience in bringing and acting in complex proceedings relating to the rights and wel-fare of vulnerable people. We have a number of barristers who act in cases which involve best interest decisions, welfare and financial decisions and deprivations of liberty including contested applications involving fact-finding hearings. In addition, we also appear in cases brought under or involving the Mental Health Act 1983 and undertake advisory work.
Crown Chambers are instructed by local authorities as well as by the Official Solicitor, NHS Trusts, Mental Health review tribunals and individuals.
At Crown Chambers we pride ourselves on our ability to draw upon our vast expertise in cases involving contentious issues relating to “best interests”, particularly in cases involving children in public law cases.
Our barristers are well placed to provide a “best interests” approach where allegations of inappropriate care or ill-treatment are raised, very often against family members who are vulnerable or elderly.
Crown Chambers are instructed to appear in cases concerning deprivation of liberty and where there are issues regarding where parties reside or with whom they have contact in cases where they lack capacity.
We also specialise in cases concerning vulnerable, young people who are the subject of care proceedings and in cases where there is an inevitable overlap with linked Children Act proceedings.
Crown Chambers barristers also act in matters involving contested deputy ship, lasting/enduring power of attorney applications and cases relating to the financial affairs of individuals without capacity. We also have specialism in representing parties in cases involving forced marriages and application for statutory wills.
