Partner in Dispute Resolution & Commercial Litigation,
Insolvency & Corporate Recovery
Mark is a straight talking and practical solicitor dealing with debt recovery, insolvency, commercial litigation and dispute resolution. Described by Legal 500 as being at the ‘top end for resolving contested debt issues’, ‘very enthusiastic, practical and pragmatic’, and recommended in the directory from 2008 to 2012.
Qualifying as a solicitor in 1988, he has spent more than 30 years specialising in resolving disputes and has been closely involved with the Insolvency Act 1986 since it came into force.
Mark is passionate about his work and recognises that insolvency is much more than the collapse of a business, there are the livelihoods of employees and creditors to consider and his particular talents lie in finding creative solutions to deal with insolvent situations.
It is important to Mark that he not only finds the right solution/resolution to any issue but in addition that clients learn from their experience.
Due to the flexible nature of the work environment and the low overhead this means that clients’ cases are dealt with by a senior solicitor without the “designer” price-tag usually associated with that level of fee-earner.
Clients range from local individuals to national companies covering a broad range of businesses including engineering, recruitment, manufacturing, solicitors, web-designers, suppliers, tradesmen, transport, commercial landlords and accountants.
Mark has undertaken debt recovery work for his entire career and builds relationships with his clients to aid them in avoiding problems re-occurring as part of the fixed fee package. Mark provides a “hands on” and “bespoke” debt recovery service for clients.
Mark provides a seamless transition from debt recovery to commercial litigation when claims become contested. Having considered the merits before commencing proceedings, Mark deals with any defence and the procedural steps to bring the matter to trial as soon as is practical – considering any appropriate offers/dispute resolution options that should be made or considered.
Over the years Mark has developed a network of trusted professionals who can bring their areas of expertise to assist in the resolution, enquiry and enforcement processes.
Mark has been actively involved with insolvency since the legislation was updated in 1986 and is consulted regularly by insolvency practitioners and bankrupts/their partners or spouses to assist in the resolution of the issues that arrive in an insolvent situation.
