Our Services

Court of protection

All our assessors are recognised by the Court of Protection.

Contentious probate

It is possible to pass an opinion on someone's mental capacity to make a Will after they have died.

Testamentary capacity

Testamentary capacity is another way of saying capacity to make a Will.

Capacity to litigate

Like testamentary capacity, capacity to litigate is not covered under the Mental Capacity Act (2005). Most GP's we spoke to were unaware of the need to use a test other than the Mental Capacity Act.

Capacity to make a gift

This is another area that sits outside of the remit of the Mental Capacity Act (2005) unbeknownst to most practitioners.
