Civil - Mental Health Law

Our team of expert mental health barristers deal with all aspects of the Mental Health Act 1983 and Mental Capacity Act 2005 including issues surrounding treatment and detention, vulnerable adults and deprivation of liberty.

The group provide a wide range of representation from the Mental Health Review Tribunal as well as Court of Protection and capacity matters. In addition, the specialist barristers deal with Judicial Review proceedings arising from mental health related issues.

Mental health law frequently crosses over with many of the other practice areas which KBG deal with such as care proceedings, crime, inquests, immigration , administrative law and employment.

As well as representing individuals, members of the mental health team also act on behalf of Local Authorities and NHS Trusts, sometimes on an emergency basis
