Hyphen Law

Hyphen Law is a firm of specialist lawyers. We provide Court of Protection deputyship services to help vulnerable individuals who lack the necessary mental capacity to make important decisions about issues relating to their property and financial affairs. We also create and where necessary, administer Personal Injury Trusts.

We have years of experience providing advice and support to people with acquired brain injuries due to clinical negligence or serious accidents.

As experts working solely in the field of mental capacity, we have a highly experienced, caring, compassionate and skilled legal and administrative team dedicated to safeguarding the welfare of all our clients, their families and carers.

Our specialist lawyers look after our clients’ financial affairs and property matters, dealing with all aspects of the necessary administrative and legal paperwork. This includes advising on means-tested benefits and other local authority and NHS support.

We work closely with our clients, families, carers and care professionals, offering a highly personalised and responsive service, regularly meeting clients in their own homes. Our team is hand-picked for their professionalism and understanding of the needs of our clients and their best interests are at the heart of everything we do.

Christine Bunting, Director of Hyphen Law, is regularly asked to provide expert witness statements in relation to Court of Protection and Personal Injury Trust costs in clinical negligence and personal injury litigation cases.
