  • Overview

    Expert witness services offered by our Court of Protection solicitors

    Accurately assessing the head of damages relating to Court of Protection costs is important whether you are acting for a claimant or defendant. We can:

    • Provide expert witness statements for claimant lawyers outlining the professional fees and Court of Protection costs likely to be incurred - whether a lay or professional Deputy is to be appointed
    • Provide expert witness statements for defendant lawyers that assess and comment on the reasonableness of a claim for professional fees and Court of Protection costs
    • Prepare informal assessments and expert witness reports on Court of Protection costs for defendant lawyers, where formal statements for service are not required
    • Act as a joint expert for either claimant or defendant
    • Attend court to provide evidence
