Outer Temple Barristers authorised to sit in the Court of Protection


We are delighted to announce that Nathan Tavares QC, Mark Mullins and Simon Burrows have been authorised to sit as fee paid judges of the Court of Protection.

They will deal with both health & welfare and property affairs cases.

At the recent Court of Protection Practitioners Association annual conference in Manchester, Vice President of the Court, Mr Justice Hayden, said that the quality of applications for this recruitment exercise was the highest he had seen in any comparable competition. He welcomed the experience that new appointees to the Court would bring.

Nathan, appointed QC this year, is a specialist clinical negligence and personal injury practitioner. His particular interests are in acquired brain injury, the Court of Protection and mental health law. Mark and Simon are both well known for their Court of Protection, mental health and public law expertise.

All three Outer Temple barristers will continue to sit as fee paid judges in the First Tier Tribunal (Mental Health).
