Kingsley Napley LLP Solicitors' dedicated, supportive Court of Protection & Deputyship and Clinical Negligence & Personal Injury teams offer specialist legal services for those seeking compensation and those needing assistance in managing their financial affairs following a compensation award.

If you would like more information about how we could assist you, please contact Simon Hardy (Court of Protection & Deputyship), Richard Lodge (Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury) or any member of our team.

We have a wealth of experience working with clients and their families who seek legal advice, justice and support in managing the affairs of individuals who have suffered or lack capacity as a result of medical negligence, personal injury or illness.   

We seek compensation for clients who have suffered as a result of medical negligence (often from injuries caused at birth or brain or spinal injury)  or who have suffered serious personal injury.  

We are also highly experienced in acting as Professional Deputies, working closely with individuals who have received compensation awards and who need assistance in managing their financial affairs.  We also help in the litigation process by providing expert evidence in support of the claim for future deputyship costs.

We are pragmatic and live in the real world.  For example, we are happy to visit you at home, and we work closely with our clients to achieve the best outcome. We know life isn't always easy, especially when living with disability, and we will do whatever we can to improve your situation.

Rather than just tell you what the law is we will provide clear and succinct advice and make recommendations so you can make informed decisions. Whatever we do, you can be confident that we will always act in your best interests.

Appointing a Deputy

If you lose capacity and have not already made a Power of Attorney, you may have to apply to the Court of Protection to appoint a deputy.

Changing your Deputy

If you lack capacity and need the support of a deputy to manage your financial affairs, it is essential that you work with the right person.

Supporting Deputies

Becoming a deputy is only the first part of a long journey. As specialists in Court of Protection work we can support you in this important role.

As either a deputy or attorney you will only usually have very limited powers to make gifts on behalf of the person you are acting for.

Personal Injury Trusts

If you have received an award of compensation and you claim benefits, then you may wish to consider setting up a personal injury trust.

Buying, Adapting and Selling a Property

Buying or selling a property is often the biggest financial decision most people make, this is especially so for an individual who lacks capacity.

Statutory Wills

The Court of Protection has powers under the Mental Capacity Act 2005 to authorise the making of a statutory will.
