"No5 Barristers' Chambers offers expertise in a wide range of health and welfare matters. Members are experienced in the handling of complex residence, forced marriage, deprivation of liberty and capacity to consent to sexual relations cases."

"No5 Barristers' Chambers 'have a number of highly experienced practitioners' with substantial expertise in cases of deprivation of liberty, medical treatment and alleged infringements of vulnerable adults human rights."

Legal 500 2024

No5 Barristers’ Chambers has a highly-respected group of specialists working in the Court of Protection. Members of Chambers not only practise extensively in this complex and specialist area but also lecture and train practitioners. A number of our barristers are instructed to train social workers and medical professionals in this field.

The breadth and depth of No5’s expertise in all aspects of this specialist area means that it is able to represent a wide variety of parties in all types of cases concerning:

  • property and affairs; and
  • health and welfare matters (including serious medical treatment cases, and deprivations of liberty); and
  • the invocation of the High Court’s inherent jurisdiction for the protection of vulnerable adults.

Whatever the issue, members of Chambers can assist with all aspects of the court process, whether that is advising at a pre-action stage, assisting with the initial application itself, or representing a party in the Court of Protection once an application has been made.

Members are frequently instructed on behalf of claimants, family members, local authorities, health bodies, private bodies and the Official Solicitor and the Office of the Public Guardian in cases ranging from welfare, financial issues, the deprivation of liberty safeguards, medical treatment and all subsequent appellate work.
