"one of the most eminent practitioners in the field" and "considered excellent on tortuously technical tax and trust-related issues" Chambers UK 2012

Mark is an experienced specialist in the law of trusts and tax. He has been in practice since 1975 and became a QC in 1995.

Mark’s practice covers all aspects of the law relating to settlements, wills, charities and occupational pension schemes, including probate, family provision and breach of trust litigation as well as less contentious applications under the Trustee Acts and the Variation of Trusts Act 1958. He has particular experience in capital taxation, the taxation of settlements and estates, off-shore trusts and estate planning.

Mark has experience overseas, assisting with trust litigation in Jersey, the Caymans and elsewhere. He has represented the Inland Revenue of Hong Kong in an appeal concerning the General Anti-Avoidance Rule, assisted in a successful appeal in Barbados on the construction of trust instruments, and has given expert evidence of English law in a Canadian arbitration.

Trusts and their taxation have always been at the heart of Mark’s practice, and he has had a great deal of experience in advising settlors, trustees and beneficiaries, and in trust drafting. At the same time the breadth of his practice is shown by some of the cases in which he has been involved as counsel. He also sits as a deputy High Court judge of the Chancery Division.
