For the past 20 years he has concentrated on building up the firm's Court of Protection practice and the firm is now widely considered to be one of the key market leaders with a large and dedicated team of specialists dealing only with this area of law.

He now acts as the Court of Protection Deputy in well over 200 cases. Eddie heads up the Court of Protection team (one of the largest in the country) and works closely with our Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury team.

   

Edward Fardell heads the department and has a superb reputation for contentious property and affairs work, particularly in relation to clinical negligence and personal injury. He also acts as an expert witness and as a financial deputy. "He's just amazing," says one source, "the sort of deputy you'd want for all your clients. He will go above and beyond to facilitate their needs."
