He also frequently deals with personal injury and debt recovery cases.
Prior to starting FlexLaw, Mark practised as a civil court lawyer for fifteen years with heavyweight, Edinburgh practices. Latterly working in commercial and personal injury litigation, his interest in IT led him to decide to fulfil his long-held ambition of starting his own, high-tech law firm.
Mark is well known amongst clients and colleagues for his practical, problem-solving approach to litigation. He is a highly skilled negotiator, and always takes a pride in achieving the best possible result for his clients.
In his spare time, Mark likes to indulge his passion for the outdoors, and he can sometimes be found munro-bagging, mountain biking, and even paragliding!
