Mark is our director for compliance and our COLP. He was previously a long time member of our dispute resolution team and undertook some private client work, so he understands the pressures under which both our clients and we operate. That gives him a great starting point from which to handle the firm’s compliance and regulatory matters. What is more, as well as having over 30 years experience of resolving disputes, Mark is also a mediator.
As a lawyer, mediator and long time business owner, Mark gained a rounded insight into the wants and needs of his clients and was consistently recognised in the Legal 500 for his pragmatic and practical approach to dispute resolution. He carries this experience through to helping the firm with its compliance and regulatory obligations.
Mark is a keen and active sportsman. He is extremely competitive to the extent that he once entered a swimming gala even though he could not swim because if everyone else could do it, so could he, but better!
When not in the office Mark is a regular runner (having run for his adopted county) and a keen cyclist. He also enjoys watching his son play rugby.
