Mark called to the bar in 2022 after 14 years in practice as a solicitor.

Before Calling Mark was an associate at one of Scotland’s largest personal injury firms. He has experience of acting in claims arising out of road traffic accidents, workplace accidents and public liability. Mark latterly specialised in industrial disease cases, particularly claims for asbestos-related conditions. He has represented clients in Sheriff Courts across Scotland, including the Sheriff Appeal Court and the All-Scotland Personal Injury Court.

During devilling Mark was involved in a broad range of personal injury matters. He also gained experience of acting for defenders in personal injury cases including chronic pain cases with complex medical evidence and cases where significant future wage loss claims were being advanced.

Mark has a particular focus on industrial disease cases, and during devilling he developed an interest in foreign and travel cases involving accidents abroad.
