Court of Protection specialist joins Sintons


The Court of Protection team at Sintons is adding a new specialist to help support its growth, as it continues to be appointed in cases nationally.

Hannah Mitchell has worked in Court of Protection work since qualifying as a solicitor, and supports with a host of matters including appointing and advising deputies, supporting vulnerable individuals in managing their property and financial affairs, and preparing statutory wills.

Hannah, a Dementia Friend, is also experienced in assisting elderly clients who have lost capacity due to dementia.

She joins Sintons at a time of strong progress for its Court of Protection team, which continues to win work across the country on the strength of its reputation for legal and client service excellence.

The team – part of Sintons’ highly-respected Wills, Trusts and Estates department – recently won praise from both Legal 500 and Chambers 2023 for its work across the board, and particularly for its close cooperation with its Personal Injury and Neurotrauma teams in supporting injured adults and children who lack capacity.

“Sintons has a first-rate reputation in the marketplace for its work in Court of Protection matters and I am delighted to join,” says Hannah.

“Court of Protection work is vital in safeguarding injured and vulnerable people and I am passionate about protecting these clients. At Sintons, the close working between its Court of Protection, Personal Injury and Wills, Trusts and Estates specialists adds another level of support and joined-up working to clients, which can only be a positive in securing the best outcome for them.”

Paul Nickalls, head of Wills, Trusts and Estates – and again named by Legal 500 as one of the leading lawyers in the North of England – says: “Our Court of Protection team is known on a national basis for the quality of our work, both in terms of legal expertise and client service excellence, and this reputation continues to grow through the hard work and outstanding efforts of our team.

“We are very pleased to welcome Hannah to the team. Her experience in this very specialist area of law and commitment to supporting vulnerable clients are a great asset to what we offer here and we look forward to working with her to increase our capability and offering to clients even further.”
