Mark is a leading intellectual property practitioner whose practice is diverse and includes numerous heavyweight contractual disputes within the court system and by way of arbitration, in which he acts for both governments and corporates.

“An esteemed trade mark law and passing-off expert with 25 years of experience of representing well-known brands”, Mark is recommended by Legal 500, for intellectual property work.  They commend his “encyclopaedic knowledge of the law” and the fact that he has “an inventive mind for challenging situations”.   He is also praised for “his client-facing skills and robust advocacy”.

Mark is known for his “refreshingly informal but highly commercial approach”.   His legal expertise is enhanced by his time as sole in-house counsel at Dunlop Slazenger and Head of IP at The Body Shop International Pl.  He is and has been standing counsel for a number of multi-national companies and SMEs such as Alexander McQueen, Specsavers, Monsoon and Oxford Brookes University.

In addition to his legal practice, Mark is a mentor and advocacy trainer at Kings College London, a research associate at St Edmunds College Cambridge, and in 2018 appointed Associate Professor to Notre Dame University.  He is also a Bencher of the Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn. Download Marks’s CV
