About Mark

I am a defence barrister having been called to the bar in 1985, giving me more than 30 years of experience in expert criminal and regulatory defence. I have extensive experience in both domestic and international work. I worked as a stagiaire in DGIV (Competition) in the European Commission in Brussels giving me excellent insight into both regulatory offences and fraud. Furthermore, I studied European Law at the College of Europe (Bruges) and I am currently a member of the Bar European Group and the European Lawyers Bar Association.

I often defend professionals for whom conviction would cause reputational damage, (including, police officers; journalists; professors; diplomats; teachers; doctors; foster carers).
