Alongside his practice, Mark teaches part-time at University College, London, where he teaches an LLM module on International and Commercial Trusts Law with Professor Charles Mitchell.
Mark joined Chambers in October 2018 following the successful completion of his pupillage. His pupil supervisors were Dan McCourt Fritz, Constance McDonnell, Matthew Morrison, and Gareth Tilley.
