Background

Mark has been with Fernandes Hearn since 2012 when he completed an articling term, before joining the team as an associate lawyer. Mark is involved in all facets of the firm's specialist practice areas, working with domestic and global clients on commercial and liability claims involving all four modes of transport, with a particular interest in aviation in which he also provides regulatory advice.

Mark earned undergraduate degrees in common and civil law from King's College London and Université de Paris I: Panthéon-Sorbonne respectively upon the completion of the prestigious integrated English and French laws programme. Mark subsequently came to Canada, where in 2006 he obtained an LL.M. in International Business Law from McGill University.

During his Masters degree, Mark focused on international maritime and aviation law, and subsequently secured a position in Geneva as a consultant to the World Trade Organization, working with a small team on the Second GATS Five Year Review of Civil Aviation. Mark's interest and expertise in Air Law flourished from there, and he has since worked for the World Bank, advising Pakistan on its commercial aviation policy, for the Director of Public Prosecutions on the application of competition law to civil aviation, and served as policy contributor on civil aviation relations to a Canada-European Union joint think tank.

Mark has taught workshops on aspects of aviation law, and has been invited to speak on conference panels in Montreal, Vancouver, Abu Dhabi and Singapore.

Mark enjoys working on complex litigation and he defends clients in mass tort proceedings involving both property and personal injury claims. Mark’s working knowledge of various European languages also assists him in efficiently and effectively handling multinational and pluri-jurisdictional disputes. Outside of work, Mark enjoys traveling the world and he has been to all six continents; his adventures while on his travels equip him well in understanding global transportation networks and what happens when things go wrong.
