  • “Mark is a very talented solicitor and someone that I can trust to provide solid practical advice, often at very short notice, in a friendly and approachable manner. He is able to quickly draw out the underlying commercial aspects of each transaction, and our fundamental needs, to bring about a timely legal conclusion. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark to other clients and colleagues, and have done so on numerous occasions”
