Cases within the Court of Protection can vary dramatically, however, here is an example of some of our recent work successfully acting on behalf of clients.

The problem: An elderly lady found herself forcibly removed from the house she had called her home for over 40 years.

The defence: The local authority argued that the lady lacked the mental & physical capacity to properly make her own decisions.

The lady now faced spending the rest of her life confined to a nursing home.
Though her concerned family raised their objections – arguing the lady was more than capable of continuing living in the house – she was removed and separated from her loved ones.

How Bison helped: We provided our specialist expertise to the lady and her family. We were thrilled when finally, after an extremely complicated legal process with the Court of Protection, the lady returned to her home and her family.
