Family Law

Ancillary Relief


The main focus is in ancillary relief (financial remedies) for husbands, wives and children, especially where there are trust and/or business assets and farms. Mark cuts through volume of paper to the core and critical issues and is focussed and blunt with his clients and the Court alike. He is overwhelmingly commercial in approach: final hearings are a last resort, but if necessary they are contested with vigour.

Inheritance Act or TOLATA


These Areas neatly dovetail with Mark’s financial remedies, land and trust interests. He acts almost equally for Applicants and Respondents, but is equally comfortable with acting for intervenors and third parties in these applications.

Civil Law

Land and Property


Mark works for a wide variety of local authorities and private individuals in a wide range of land and property disputes including public and private rights of way, restrictive covenants (including modification and discharge and consequent compensation assessments) and interim and final relief including injunctions
