Court of Protection
 

IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE

When you have prepared hundreds of Court of Protection bills, the knowledge of what is likely (and unlikely!) to be allowed on assessment becomes second nature. So, for each bill we prepare, we consider whether the Deputy could better present their file and the information it contains, to assist both us in preparing the bill and the Court in assessing it. If we think there is room for improvement, we aren't shy in saying so.  After all, better files lead to better bills and better results.

HELP, I NEED SOMEBODY!

For those who are unfamiliar with the procedure for assessing a Court of Protection bill, we give guidance and assistance to ensure the process runs smoothly. If preferred, we will take over the process for you, leaving you free to get on with managing the Protected Party's finances. 

ALRIGHT, THERE IS A TINY BIT
OF ROCKET SCIENCE

To assist you, we have produced some file management notes specifically for Court of Protection matters, which aid the proper presentation of files thus assisting the Court to fairly determine what should be allowed.

SHOW ME THE MONEY

Finally, when the costs and our own charges have been assessed by the Court, we will review our fee in the light of what has been allowed and will usually accept the figure approved by the Court, even if it is less than originally claimed. Our charges for preparing Court of Protection bills are £118/hr.
