Mark qualified as a solicitor in August 2019. He has 20 years’ experience with leasehold enfranchisement, initially working for a leading project management company that managed bulk lease extension projects and large freehold purchases on behalf of thousands of leaseholders. During that time he also served as Membership Secretary for ALEP (the Association of Leasehold Enfranchisements Practitioners).
He also co-founded and was Managing Director of a valuation firm specialising in the area before starting my legal training in 2014. This gave him a fully rounded understanding of the whole process to allow him to advise freeholders and leaseholders alike.
When working for the project management company he was the Operations Director and therefore company law and commercial property immediately interested him having been in the same position as his clients just a few years earlier, negotiating on new office premises on numerous occasions.
Having run companies before turning to law he has an understanding of the position that his clients are in, having been there himself, and can operate with a business as well as legal mind when approaching transactions.
