We are delighted to announce that Christine Bunting and Kelly Knight have been recognised in the latest 2022 edition of the leading, independent legal guide Chambers & Partners for their expertise in providing Court of Protection services for vulnerable clients lacking capacity.
Associate Legal Director Kelly Knight has been praised as an ‘associate to watch’ in the management of property and financial matters for clients lacking capacity.
One independent source described Kelly as ‘very responsive and on the ball.’
Director of Hyphen Law Christine Bunting frequently acts as a financial deputy on behalf of vulnerable individuals, advises lay deputies and Personal Injury Trust trustees on a range of matters and is often called upon as an expert witness in complex matters.
Christine’s approach is highly praised with Chambers and Partners stating ‘Christine is very knowledgeable, approachable and highly organised. She is calming, practical, and knows how to manage clients in a way where you help them to come to a decision in their best interests.’
These latest accolades for the Hyphen Law team come soon after its huge success in the influential Legal 500 Guide to the UK’s leading legal firms and lawyers.
Speaking of the business as a whole, one professional contact quoted in the Legal 500 said Hyphen Law “takes a positive and inclusive approach to clients’ needs and is keen to ensure clients’ wellbeing throughout the process.”
Others said: “I like the personal approach of the deputies I work with. They really take the time to get to know the clients and the way they live, which makes it much easier to communicate and discuss services and equipment that the client wants to purchase. There are always key people to speak to for the client which ensures continuity.”
Director Christine Bunting is described as an “absolutely excellent lawyer, very hardworking and great attention to detail”, “very approachable, with a really nice and calm manner with clients, very down to earth and clients feel easily reassured and trust her.”
For her expert work she is described as “superb – a real leader in her field” and “is fantastic – knows deputyship work inside and out – she is incredibly knowledgeable, thorough, hardworking and a joy to work. Simply one of, if not, the best deputyship experts in the country”.
Associate Legal Director Kelly Knight is also praised: “I have always found Kelly and the team supporting her to be highly professional, responsive and committed to obtaining the right results for their clients in the right way. Clients can be proud of the way their cases are advanced by her team. Kelly is incredibly capable, engaged and will do whatever it takes to get the right results for her clients” and is “very efficient and pro-active and ensures that the client receives value for the money they spend. Also, very approachable and easy to talk to for clients and professionals “.
Hyphen Law Associate Solicitor Emma Costin was also singled out for praise and is ‘particularly sought after in cases where there is ongoing litigation’ and ‘She is very approachable with attention to detail, keeping the clients’ best interests in mind at all times.”
