Services for Solicitors

Our services to solicitors include acting as a professional Deputy or Trustee and acting as an Expert Witness in relation to Deputyship costs.

Professional Deputyship and Trustee services

Acting as a Court of Protection Deputy or a professional Trustee can be challenging, especially if you are managing the often complex issues of your clients personal injury litigation. Because Deputyship and Personal Injury Trusts are our key focus, we can really help you. Dealing with complex family circumstances, complicated medical conditions and budgetary matters can put great pressure on a Deputy or Trustee, particularly if you are new to the role, dealing with other pressures of work, or working alone.

Taking on the role of a Deputy or Trustee brings significant responsibilities and an obligation to comply with the commitments given to the Court of Protection in the  Deputy Declaration or the obligations placed on a Trustee by the Trustee Act. Budget management with a long term management strategy is vital to ensue that your client’s compensation or other wealth will be there to support them throughout their lifetime. Choosing the right advisors whether it be for care provision, investment, a tricky employment issue or a contract dispute is a vital part of that management process. Taking the wrong course of action or failing to act could have a significant impact on your clients future financial security.

If Deputyship or Personal Injury Trusts are not your specialism, then the particular challenges of working long term with families and coordinating care with medical and other support professionals can be time consuming and problematic.

We can take away the burden. At Hyphen Law, Deputyship and Personal injury Trusts are our key focus. We are highly experienced with the knowledge, perspective and empathy to make the lives of our clients and their support teams easier. 

We can also help you with the Deputyship and Trust aspects of litigation including  projections in relation to administration costs, on an informal basis or by way of a witness statement, joint discussions and if necessary attendance at court to give formal evidence. We can also help with record keeping to assist with your schedules and budgeting in relation to interim payments.  Our expertise helps lighten the load leaving you to deal with the complexities of litigation.
