Sophia Roper is a barrister at Serjeants’ Inn. Sophia’s core practice is in medical treatment and welfare cases in the Court of Protection, in which she previously specialised at the Official Solicitor’s office. Sophia is regularly instructed by Trusts, CCGs and local authorities, as well as the Official Solicitor, and family members. She frequently advises on urgent medical treatment cases in respect of adults and children, both in the Court of Protection and under the inherent jurisdiction of the High Court.
