Mark Irving handles all aspects of private family law with a particular emphasis on complex financial and children cases, and those with an international dimension.
Mark has considerable experience advising clients in relation to financial claims upon the breakdown of marriage and other relationships. He is often instructed to advise on the care and living arrangements for children, including international relocation cases, and advises regularly on pre and post nuptial agreements as well as cohabitation agreements.
Mark advises clients from all walks of life. Many have substantial assets, offshore and corporate asset-holding structures, are in the public eye or have reputation management concerns.
Mark’s particular skill is in providing clients with smart strategies and solutions, simplifying complex legal issues and communicating in a down to earth and collegiate manner.
Mark has been described by Patrick Chamberlayne QC as “an outstanding family lawyer with an exceptional strategic brain” and by Alex Verdan QC as a lawyer with “excellent judgment” who “knows when to litigate and fight a case hard, and yet also is astute and reasonable and knows when to compromise”.
In addition to Mark’s client work, he holds a number of management positions within the firm.
