He is rated as a leading silk in construction in Chambers & Partners, where he is said to be "impressive in court and possessed of a very agile brain", “robust and very detailed in his advice”. Recently Mark has been said to be establishing himself as “one of the leading thinkers in the market” and has been described as having “a velvet-gloved grasp of the law”, “an eye for legal minutiae” and “very good judgment in all that he undertakes”.
