Mark is an experienced criminal practitioner, appearing almost exclusively for the defence in serious and high profile cases. Many of the cases he is instructed in involve matters of complex fraud, money laundering, large drug conspiracies, serious violence offences and serious sexual offences.
The nature of the cases is such that they are usually complex and document intensive. As a result he appears regularly as both a leading and led junior in Courts across the country.
Of particular note is his ability to deal with the most complex financial and accounting matters. He also has extensive experience of international cross-border issues, particularly the admissibility and investigative powers.
