Mark joined Clerksroom in 2017 having built a following as a sole practitioner over a number of years. His career at the Bar began with a common law pupillage in Temple followed by tenancy at a then leading Manchester set. His work is predominantly in personal injury and ancillary fields covering public and employers’ liability, holiday sickness, and road traffic including claims in which allegations of fraud have been intimated. He has a wealth of experience in low speed impact dating to the aftermath of Kearsley and Casey. He is happy to consider instructions on a conditional fee basis.
In credit hire Mark is equally comfortable representing claimants or insurers. On a different slant he appears regularly in flight delay matters, particularly those involving the ‘exceptional circumstance’ defence.
Mark has a fast-developing interest in medical and healthcare law and will soon be reading part-time for a Masters degree. He is keen to take instructions commensurate with expertise in these areas in due course. He has attended a short course at Sheffield University on Coronial Law and Inquests.
Based in Liverpool, Mark’s practice regularly takes him much further afield. He is happy to travel when required.
Away from work Mark is an accomplished runner, breaking the three-hour barrier in the 2017 London Marathon. He enjoys classical music concerts wherever and whenever possible.
