Fosters expand Court of Protection practice

We are delighted to be able to confirm an expansion to our legal service offering surrounding the Court of Protection.

The Court of Protection, situated in London, is an independent court with a number of responsibilities that can include determining whether someone has the mental capability to make financial or health decisions, and also decide on who to appoint as that person’s representative, known as the deputy.

Our team already holds extensive experience in applying for deputyship orders and supporting and advising our clients through every step of the court’s process. But having now recently passed the Court of Protection certificate through the University of Law, our Deputy Head of Wills, Trusts & Probate, Paige Gouldthorpe, will be driving our expertise further in this specialised area of the law.

Fosters’ Head of Wills, Trusts & Probate, Lisa Glynne commented: “We are continually looking to find ways to improve and develop our service offering to clients – and we are excited to be driving further growth in this very specific area of the law.

“As a team it’s important to us that we support our clients with expert advice, making what can be a complicated process easier to understand and guiding them through what is required by the court. Paige, through her passion for her clients and interest in this area, will continue to drive this forward.”

Paige Gouldthorpe, commented: “I am thrilled to be leading the expansion of Fosters’ Court of Protection services. This is an area I have a particular passion for and one that we as a firm are seeing a large amount of growth within.

“We regularly assist with a variety of applications to the court, helping to support vulnerable people and their families, and in some cases acting as their deputy too. I am also really pleased to have successfully passed an additional qualification in this area, hopefully complimenting my practical work in providing an empathetic and client-focussed approach.”
