Mark Wraith


Year of Call: 2017

Practice Overview

Mark is developing a busy commercial chancery practice with a particular interest in civil fraud, insolvency, commercial litigation, shareholder disputes and claims against company directors.  He appears regularly in the High Court as junior counsel, and in his own right in interlocutory and procedural matters, and in the County Court.

Before coming to the Bar, Mark read Mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge, and worked in the online gambling industry, and this background means that he is comfortable with matters involving financial, accounting, or other complex technical issues and expert evidence.  Mark previously taught courses in trusts at undergraduate and postgraduate level at UCL.

Recent instructions include acting in a claim arising out of the breakdown in relationship between the founders of a multi-million pound restaurant business (Malik v Hussain [2020] EWHC 2334 (Ch); [2021] EWHC 1405 (Ch)), and in a matter arising out of the purchase of a Luxembourg business involving allegations of fraudulent misrepresentation (currently listed for a three-week trial in early 2022).  

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. During pupillage he gained experience working on a wide range of cases across the full spectrum of Chambers’ practice.
