Higgs LLP : Michelle Weaver

I qualified as a Solicitor with Office of the Public Guardian (OPG), an executive agency to the Ministry of Justice. As an in-house Government lawyer I represented the OPG within the Court of Protection in applications relating to Lasting Powers of Attorney, Enduring Power of Attorney and Deputyship appointments.

I obtained my Higher Rights qualification in Criminal and Civil proceedings in 2018, enabling me to represent clients in capacity matters in the High Court and Court of Protection.

I advise clients on all aspects of Court of Protection work, including Lasting Powers of Attorney, Deputyships and Guardianship Orders. I have extensive expertise in litigation in this area, including bringing claims on behalf of an attorney or deputy, defending claims brought against an attorney or deputy and making a variety of applications that need approval of the Court.

I have been involved in a number of reported Court of Protection cases, which include, but are not limited to:

  • The Public Guardian v Matrix Deputies Ltd & Anor (Rev 1) [2017] EWCOP 14
  • The London Borough of Enfield v Matrix Deputies Ltd & Anor [2018] EWCOP 22
  • The Public Guardian v DA & Ors [2018] EWCOP 26
  • Office of the Public Guardian v Stalter [2018]

I am an accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly. I pride myself on providing a supportive and proactive approach, delivering a high level of service and ensuring the best interests and protection of vulnerable people are at the forefront.
