Mark is an experienced solicitor who has conducted all aspects of complex commercial litigation in the City of London and internationally for over two decades.
Mark has been involved as lead partner in some of the highest value and most complicated cases before the English courts. He acts for high-net-worth individuals, major corporates and their directors, hedge funds and insolvency practitioners. He has managed teams of leading and junior counsel from all the major sets of barristers’ chambers.
Mark’s focus areas include large scale civil fraud claims, asset tracing, contentious trusts, contractual and warranty disputes, shareholder disputes and contentious insolvency. He has extensive experience of executing and advising on injunctions, including freezing, proprietary and search orders.
Many of Mark’s cases involve cross-border issues and proceedings in other jurisdictions. He has particular expertise in litigation originating in CIS, South America, the Middle East and related offshore jurisdictions. He is a solicitor-advocate with full rights of audience in the higher courts.
Highlights of Mark’s recent work include successfully defending a high-profile businessman against committal proceedings in a long-running dispute with a former business partner.
Before founding Quillon Law, Mark practised law as a partner at two internationally recognised law firms, at one of which he was head of civil fraud.

A new entry to the market, Quillon Law LLP was founded in 2021 by Mark Hastings, the former head of civil fraud at Addleshaw Goddard; his team has quickly developed a prominent reputation among a plethora of clients, namely funds, bondholders, state-owned entities, insolvency practitioners, financial institutions and high-net-wroth individuals.
Founded in late 2021 by former Grosvenor Law (GL) partner Mark Hastings and Michael Barnett, previously a global litigation head at Addleshaw Goddard, Quillon Law LLP is a specialist commercial and corporate disputes practice; Hastings and Barnett are further supported at partner level by commercial and civil fraud litigator Nicola McKinney, an October 2022 hire from GL.
