Kate Edwards

Director of Private Client

Kate Edwards is recognised as one of the country’s leading experts in Court of Protection (CoP) matters. She is responsible for leading and expanding our COP offering in response to the growing demand for our private client services. Kate’s work involves overseeing the property and financial affairs, and personal welfare of clients who lack mental capacity through injury or illness. She has a wealth of expertise in professional deputyship, including cases involving high value litigation and cross border disputes.


In 2020, Edwards was invited by Mr Justice Hayden to join the ‘Hive Committee’ – a small group of key individuals who could consult rapidly on the issues affecting the working of the CoP during the pandemic – at the start of the Covid-crisis. She also founded the Court of Protection Practitioner’s Association (CoPPA) in 2012 and continues to sit on the national executive committee.
