Mark is a Solicitor in our Court of Protection department.
Education & Career
Having been introduced to Court of Protection work during a seat in his training contract, he went on to specialise in this area upon qualification. Over the last five years, Mark has been working with the Deputy to manage and co-ordinate the property and financial affairs of clients who are deemed unable to do so themselves.
In doing so, he has built good relationships with the litigation team, the care and case management team, but importantly the client and their family. Working closely with other professionals, including case managers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and financial advisors, Mark ensures that the client receives the care and support that they require. Witnessing the progress that his clients make with their rehabilitation and co-ordinated care, as well as managing their finances, is what Mark finds most rewarding.
Outside of work...
Mark loves to get out riding his bike, travel around the world and play football. Such activities have been scaled back following his transition to fatherhood, although he still finds time for six-a-side football on a Monday night!
