Mark qualified as a solicitor in 1998 after studying law at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth and then at the College of Law Chester. He has always specialised in medical negligence claims.

During his career he has secured millions of pounds in damages for clients as well as much needed treatment packages and rehabilitation.

He has acted in claims against the NHS, against the Ministry of Defence and in claims against private surgeons and medics. He has helped clients with acquired brain injuries, clients with Cerebral Palsy, PTSD, orthopaedic injuries and people who have lost their sight due to negligence.

He is a ranked individual in Chambers and Partners for clinical negligence work.

Mark is one of the founding partners of Price Slater Gawne and now supervises the medical negligence department to make sure that our high standards are maintained. Mark is also responsible for training our junior specialist medical negligence solicitors and enjoys seeing his knowledge and experience passed on to the next generation of lawyer at Price Slater Gawne.

Mark is married and the proud owner of a lovely Labrador retriever. He enjoys cooking, hill walking and reading. However, his main interest outside work is Triathlon. As a teenager, Mark swam with the swim Squad in Trafford and swam for his county. He gave up to focus on studying to become a lawyer and to forge a career. After a brief return to swimming as a masters swimmer he found he enjoyed open water swimming more and has now turned his hand to the challenge of middle distance triathlon. Mark is a member of Manchester Triathlon Club.

Kind words

I engaged Mark Slater in what was an extremely complex case. During this time Mark was tenacious, thorough and extremely professional in his handling of all aspects of the case. Through what was a very difficult time Mark was extremely supportive and his tenacity and professionalism resulted in a successful outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark in relation to any clinical negligence case.
