He ceased practice as an advocate to devote his full time to mediation in June 2009 when he joined Independent Mediators.
Mark mediates a wide variety of commercial disputes, but with a particular emphasis on commercial, professional negligence and insurance cases following his many years of specialisation in those fields while in practice as a junior and a silk.

Parties have included companies both national and multi-national, public and private, individuals and public bodies.
