Court of Protection solicitors usually pay for Charity endorsement and Law Society Mental Capacity Accreditation.
They increasingly work for large Alternative Business Structures which market themselves as old style solicitors but are commercially aware corporations with scant competition and no personal liability .
Fees and services are therefore fairly standardised.
These lawyers are also contracted by the government to act as Official Solicitors.
To attend the hearing to remove your loved one in less than 24 hours you will be billed £500 over the phone and informed that this is half the legal aid rate.
On arrival at court you meet your lawyer who liaises with the LA solicitor and tells you that if you agree their Orders, you can avoid the police arriving to remove .
So faced with no option you agree to anything.
If you do not, the judge will usually order what the LA want anyway.
