Mark Flack

Consultant Solicitor, Court of Protection

Mark heads up the firm’s specialist Court of Protection Team which provides long-term legal support for persons who may lack mental capacity due to age-related issues or injury.

The team delivers services providing for the welfare and financial decisions of people who don’t have the mental capacity to make those decisions themselves:

  • Lay deputy applications, such as a friend or family member who wish to be appointed by the Court to make decisions in the best interests of their loved one
  • Acting as professional deputy appointed by the Court to make complex financial and welfare decisions in the best interests of the client
  • Personal injury compensation management, helping clients to manage and get the most out of the compensation
  • Statutory Will applications for approval by the Court on behalf of a person who lacks capacity. When this person passes away, their Statutory Will is treated the same way as a regular Will
  • Personal Injury Trusts, which are an important legal arrangement that allows compensation funding to be managed in a manner which protects them for the lifetime of the person benefitting.

Barr Ellison Law is one of only a few law firms which has a dedicated Court of Protection Team.

Mark is a qualified solicitor who has worked locally in the legal profession for 20 years. He joined Barr Ellison in July 2023, having worked previously for a regional law firm where he progressed to Partner.
