Mark joined Wildgen in 2018. He was admitted as a solicitor in England and Wales in 2004 and specialises in the structuring and distribution of regulated and unregulated funds, and has experience across the liquidity spectrum.

Before joining our firm, Mark worked in-house at a number of fund management businesses, where he worked with internal clients, leading them through the earliest stages of the establishment of funds and management companies, through the legal and regulatory aspects of launches, and ongoing matters relating to the management, governance and global distribution of funds.

Mark is known for his commercial and pragmatic approach to issues around fund management stemming from his background in-house. His breadth of buy-side experience in the funds industry spans structures and jurisdictions and allows him to take a uniquely broad and commercial viewpoint.

While Mark specialises in funds, he is also responsible for representing the firm in the UK, assisting clients across the full range of matters of Luxembourg law, including matters relating to Brexit. He also advises on the legal issues raised by the EU’s emerging sustainable finance regulatory regime.

Mark is Co-Director of the UK Chapter of the Hedge Fund Association and a lecturer at the Henley Business School (hedge fund structuring). Mark holds a Bachelor of Law (hons) from the University of Birmingham. He has been a member of the Luxembourg Bar since 2018 (List IV of the Luxembourg Bar).
