Mark Tawn who, with Richard Lowes, founded BLB Solicitors’ nationally respected Chronic Pain Team, has rejoined the firm following a four year absence. He had previously been with the firm for 15 years.
Mark, who qualified as a solicitor in 1994, has been a member of the Law Society’s specialist Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme since 1999. In addition, he now sits on the Law Society’s influential Civil Justice Committee, whose aim it is to keep under review and to promote improvements in civil litigation, including dispute resolution.
For over two decades Mark has helped sufferers of debilitating pain conditions such as CRPS, Myofascial Pain Syndrome and Fibromyalgia to obtain treatment, interim payments, packages of care, aids and equipment and ultimately compensation, which over the years has amounted to tens of millions of pounds. Mark’s considerable expertise in this area of law has lead to him being invited to give lectures on chronic pain and the medico-legal process more generally to solicitors, barristers and medical experts. He has also been a contributor to the Law Society Gazette, the profession’s weekly publication.
BLB’s head of personal injury, Andrew Atkinson, said:
“It’s been a huge pleasure to welcome Mark back to the team. He’s a solicitor with immense experience in chronic pain, as well as personal injury litigation more generally. His arrival further strengthens the team which now numbers six senior solicitors.
“It’s also fantastic for the legal profession as a whole that the Law Society now have the benefit of his knowledge and experience.”
Out of the office Mark enjoys spending time with his family and taking long walks with his (sometimes reluctant) Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Betsy.
