Mark Crossley ensures clients benefit from the legal, technical and sector knowledge of our Construction and Engineering transactional and dispute resolution lawyers.

A poetry lover and speaker of Japanese and three European languages, Mark appreciates other perspectives and tailors his words and experience to give time-pressured clients the knowhow they need.

Recognised and respected for combining creativity with self-deprecating humour and empathy, he develops engaging training and resources that reduce risks and improve efficiency for businesses. During the pandemic, his checklist on COVID-19 and force majeure was our website's most viewed article, and for 18 months he chaired a fortnightly webinar informing the industry of the latest developments worldwide.

Whether writing general alerts, giving detailed presentations, or answering queries sent to helplines set up for our clients, he succinctly shares practical insights from his decade and a half with us, and seven years' training and working at a Magic Circle firm before that.

Mark's friendly, warm and open manner means clients enjoy collaborating with him to craft and deliver talks, workshops, and updates.
