Mark qualified as a Corporate and Commercial Solicitor in 2016, after working at the Solicitors Regulation Authority and spending around two years as a paralegal in Personal Injury before commencing a training contract. Mark wanted to be a Solicitor ever since he can remember, but it wasn’t until Mark began studying for his law degree at his local university in Wolverhampton that he realised he wanted to specialise in Corporate and Commercial law. After completing his law degree, achieving a 2:1 with honours, Mark continued his studies at the University of Wolverhampton and completed a post-graduate Legal Practice Course, achieving a Distinction.
Mark is originally from Brierly Hill in the West Midlands, but after meeting his wife at the firm where he was training, Mark moved to Shropshire. In the years before joining Hibberts, Mark worked for two well-known corporate law firms in the West Midlands and Shropshire, where he developed his skills and expertise in both corporate transactional work and commercial contract work.
Mark now heads up the Corporate and Commercial department at Hibberts, and is excited to contribute to the development of the team and grow Hibberts’ corporate presence across all our offices in the South Cheshire and North Shropshire areas.
Outside of work, Mark is a big fan of music. Mark particularly likes rock and metal, but will listen to just about anything if it’s catchy. Over the years, Mark has taught himself to play the ukulele and some piano. Mark also really enjoys anything to do with comedy, whether it’s a good, old sitcom or, even better, some stand-up. He tries to catch as many live music or comedy gigs as possible, but spends most of his free time creating mischief with his wife and two children.
Mark also follows the national hunt horse racing quite closely. You just can’t beat a day at the races, so he tries to visit a couple of meetings each year if he can.
