As a member of the Office of the Public Guardian’s panel of professional deputies we have a vast amount of knowledge and experience when it comes to making decisions or applications relating to incapacitated individuals.

Professional deputies are often appointed where:

  • There is no suitable close relative who is able or willing to act
  • Where there is a dispute or conflict of interest
  • Where there is concern about the conduct of a particular party
  • Where financial abuse is suspected
  • Where there is a complex issue to resolve such as professional negligence or other contentious matter which may require court proceedings
  • Where the assets of the incapacitated individual are in excess of one million pounds
