Court of Protection

The Court of Protection deals with applications where an individual lacks the mental capacity to manage their finances, property and personal affairs.

The GoodyBurrett private client team can advise you on all aspects of Court of Protection applications and procedures.


Dying intestate (without a Will) causes additional stress at a difficult time for families.

When a person dies without having made a Will or with a Will that is invalid, they are said to have died intestate. We at GoodyBurrett can help

Lasting Powers of Attorney

Lasting Powers of Attorney (and previously made Enduring Powers of Attorney) are very useful legal documents which ensure decisions about financial affairs and welfare can continue to be made if you were no longer able to manage your own affairs in the future.
