Disputes involving Mental Incapacity

We advise families and their fiduciaries on disputes arising from a wealth creator’s loss of mental capacity. We recognise the impact that such an event can have on families and are sensitive and agile when working with clients in these emotional circumstances. We have significant credentials in specialist litigation in the Court of Protection.

We work closely with our market-leading private client team to ensure that tax and structuring issues are fully integrated into the strategy for resolving a dispute. 

Our range of services includes:

  • Court of Protection applications and disputes;
  • deputyship disputes;
  • disputes as to the validity of powers of attorney and attorney removal or replacement;
  • freezing orders;
  • statutory wills;
  • claims relating to alleged fraud and undue influence and recovery of property;
  • forgery claims; and
  • cross-border recognition of deputyships and attorneyships.
