Career

Mark trained at Hammond Suddards and qualified qualified as a solicitor in 1992. He joined Plexus Law (formelry Parabis Law LLP) in 1995 and has 28 years’ experience of insurance litigation and for the last 15 years, he has headed up a dedicated Large Loss team for composite insurers. Mark manages a caseload of Motor, Employers’ and Public Liability Catastrophic and Large Loss claims on behalf of insurers and/or nominated, self-insured risks. He has a particular interest in defending claims for CPRS in view of the fact they are often exaggerated and consequently regularly recovers his post ‘fighting’ Part 36 offer costs in such cases. He is very approachable and flexible, providing strategic, analytical and commercial advice.

Mark has been the Client Relationship Partner for Metroline Travel Limited for the past 15 years. During this time, he advised on the Kingsway Bus incident, has dealt with numerous Discrimination claims under the Equality Act 2010 pursued by disabled service users, widely publicised fatalities and claims involving nervous shock and secondary victims. In 2016 Plexus were appointed to Metroline’s significantly reduced panel of three law firms to handle all litigated matters, ranging from small claims to catastrophic injuries.

At present, Tracey is defending on a potentially ultra-high-value, cross-jurisdictional leisure liability group action claim being made against the RFU and Wales Rugby, involving brain damage. In addition, the team has a wealth of experience in dealing with motor incidents, public liability cases and workplace accidents. Claire Attridge is developing a strong reputation in asbestos claims in particular.
