Mark Battrick

After being called to the Bar, Mark worked as a freelance advocate for several years, specialising in civil litigation and particularly housing matters such as possession proceedings and landlord and tenant cases. He then joined the Office of the Counsel General to the Welsh Government, where he advised on an extremely wide range of high level public law matters including issues of public procurement, human rights, freedom of information and local government. He was also involved in conducting criminal and civil cases at all levels from the Magistrates to the Supreme Court.

Mark has considerable experience of dealing directly with clients, opponents and the courts and is always willing to help solicitors by taking responsibility for managing and progressing cases. He knows what it is like to be the one instructing counsel, so he is well aware of the need for cost control and prompt communication. Mark has a calm and approachable manner and takes pride in getting the best possible result for every client.

Mark joined Temple Court Chambers in 2013. His practice is primarily in criminal law, in both Crown and Magistrates Courts.
