  • Overview

    Thomson Snell & Passmore has one of the largest, dedicated teams of specialist Court of Protection lawyers in the country and which is one of only three firms to be top ranked by the main legal directories, Chambers UK and The Legal 500.

    The team  of 14 consists of  four partners, two solicitors and a further eight experienced legal assistants who offer advice on a breadth of Court of Protection issues and who show the sensitivity required to handle the very delicate situations which present in this practice area.

    We have particular experience in dealing with issues related to brain and birth injuries and managing large personal injury or clinical negligence awards.  We are involved and assist in the purchase and adaptation of property and the investment of funds following settlement of a personal injury claim. We also have expertise in care fee funding and elderly client issues.

    No one client is the same and we work closely with families and clinical teams to agree and adopt strategies which are most appropriate to the individual client and to which they are most likely to respond.

    Partners Eddie Fardell and Brian Bacon are highly regarded experts with many years of experience between them. They regularly receive referrals from other personal injury and clinical negligence lawyers, barristers, case managers and other Court of Protection practitioners.

    The team represents over 250 clients where a partner, partners or the Thomson Snell & Passmore Trust Corporation Ltd acts as deputy.  We have conservatively estimated £215 million of assets under the deputies’ control, excluding periodical payments estimated at £7 million each year.

    Whilst the deputies in the firm act for a significant number of vulnerable clients, we also advise on and assist with:

    • applications for the appointment of a relative or friend as deputy
    • making one-off applications, for example for gifts, wills and property transactions
    • offering practical legal advice to elderly clients
    • care fee funding
    • preparing Lasting Powers of Attorney and advising donors and attorneys
    • establishing personal injury trusts and acting as professional trustees, if required
    • acting in contentious litigation
    • acting as expert witnesses for litigation lawyers when considering past and future professional costs
    • acting as Litigation Friend.


    As one of the largest and most established UK Court of Protection teams , we are flexible in our approach when acting for and on behalf of vulnerable clients and recognise the importance of effective communication in what is, and always will be, a collaborative approach.
