Chambers’ Court of Protection team is at the forefront of the developing jurisdiction of the Court of Protection, due in part to its historic strength in public and mental health law. Members are frequently instructed on behalf of claimants, relatives, statutory agencies, private bodies and the Official Solicitor in cases concerning welfare, financial and serious medical treatment decisions, and the deprivation of liberty safeguards.
