Mark is a Solicitor in our Court of Protection department. 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 three 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, co-ordinated care and managing their finances is what Mark finds immensely rewarding.
Mark loves to get out riding his bike, travel around the world and is a PADI open-water scuba diver. Such activities, however, have been put on hold for the last few years, swapping his Lycra for his overalls whilst renovating his home (although he still finds time for six-a-side football on a Wednesday night).
Court of Protection Testimonials
N-Able Services have worked with the Court of Protection Department at PotterReesDolan for some years now and feel that they have a good understanding of the issues that many clients face in managing their finances. In these more difficult financial times PotterReesDolan understand the importance of insuring that client’s money has to be managed wisely in order to provide the client with longevity of funding.
Mrs Edwards (Business Director) - N-Able
Fourteen years ago my daughter was seriously injured. Throughout the lengthy litigation process, Hugh Potter and his team were an excellent source of advice and support. After the case was settled, the Court of Protection became involved and so PotterReesDolan remain very much an integral and important part of our lives because Hugh was appointed deputy on my daughters behalf. As deputy, Hugh works with me, patiently explaining how the Court works, supporting family decisions, taking a great weight of responsibility from me. The devastating impact such an accident can have on a family is incalculable, but Hugh has made everything immeasurably easier for me. I would unreservedly recommend PotterReesDolan to anyone who may find themselves in similar drastic circumstances and urge them to call upon the wealth of experience and breadth of knowledge that Hugh and his colleagues are able to provide.
