Robin Tubbs, Court Of Protection Associate

Robin Tubbs, Court Of Protection Associate, Fieldfisher

Robin joined the team in 2016 after spending several years working within the busy Court of Protection team of a national law firm. He is an Associate Solicitor with significant experience of managing complex deputyships and personal injury trusts, generally involving high value damages awards which need to be managed over a client's life time. Whilst Robin has a particular interest in managing cases for clients who have unfortunately suffered complex brain injuries (whether at birth or as a result of a serious injury in later life), he has acted for clients who have lost mental capacity as a result of degenerative brain conditions such as Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

Robin also acts for lay deputies by preparing one-off applications to the Court of Protection (including statutory will and gift applications), regularly provides expert advice to claimant solicitors on the role of a professional deputy (including the provision of witness evidence on professional deputy fees) and has acted for parties in contested Court of Protection proceedings in various welfare and financial matters, including several matters involving a foreign jurisdiction.

Robin spent 12 years in the British Army and brings a wealth of practical experience and knowledge to this area of law from his previous career as a soldier although he maintains that having a young family has provided him with some of the most valuable lessons in life which he most regularly draws on during his day to day work. Outside of work Robin enjoys competitive running, skiing and cycling once as well as spending time with his young family.
