Adam accepts instructions in a wide range of Court of Protection matters. Notably, he succeeded in a tricky appeal to the High Court in a case which, at the time it was decided, broke new ground in relation to the use of Lasting Powers of Attorney. Following his success in the case, Adam wrote an article for the Law Society Private Client magazine which discussed the impact of the decision. That article can be found here. Further, Adam was recently successful in a multi-day trial relating to a contested Deputyship application in which international family issues were at play.

In addition, Adam advises and appears on applications to the COP arising out of various matters, including: financial planning (such as the approval of Deeds of Variation made on behalf of a protected party); Deputyship applications under the COP; and applications to remove Attorneys who have acted inappropriately.

When it comes to COP cases Adam takes the same kind of pragmatic approach which is often adopted by the Courts in COP cases, and he recognises and endorses the emphasis that is rightly placed on acting in the best interests of the relevant protected parties.
