About

This content is provided by Hyphen Law.

Hyphen Law is a specialist legal practice dealing with property and affairs deputyships and personal injury trusts and is best known for supporting clients nationwide who have received or go on to receive substantial compensation awards due to severe and complex injuries. 

The firm's clients usually lack the necessary mental capacity to manage their property and affairs because of a catastrophic brain injury or severe mental health difficulties. Hyphen Law also supports, advises, and assists lay Deputies and acts jointly with them on complex cases. Many of Hyphen Law’s clients are children with severe brain injuries and other disabilities.

Most of the Deputyships and Trusts Hyphen Law manages involve complex financial and personal arrangements with multi-million pounds sums under management. These include Deputyships with property and other assets held abroad or where the protected party lives abroad.

Hyphen Law is known for its breadth and depth of experience in the field of Court of Protection and for consistently offering a flexible, responsive, and client-centered approach. For example, the Deputies at Hyphen Law are happy to work jointly with Lay deputies, where this is in the best interests of the client. This is something the business is particularly known for, as many firms will not agree to the appointment of a professional Deputy with a lay Deputy.

Christine Bunting is highly sought after as a Deputy, expert witness and is a leader in her field.

Kelly Knight has worked with Christine since 2012 and has been closely involved in the setting up of Hyphen Law and its growth and strategic development. She is highly regarded within the profession and is increasingly sought after by clients.

Emma Costin has a strong background practicing as a litigator specialising in serious injury and industrial disease for many years. She has over 25 years’ experience acting for seriously injured and vulnerable clients and their families, including elderly clients and young children. Emma now works exclusively in Court of Protection and Deputyship and is particularly sought after in cases where there is ongoing litigation.

A recent initiative has involved bringing Tim Williams, a dedicated costs draftsman and paralegal onboard. Tim has specialised in Court of Protection costs work for several years, and he joins an experienced and dedicated team of paralegals.
