Practice Overview

Mark Studer practises in the mainstream of the law of trusts and estates, charities, real property and conveyancing and related professional negligence matters. His trust work embraces equity drafting and advice (both for UK and overseas clients) and the full range of private client litigation. In addition to his English court work, Mark has recently been involved in proceedings in the Bahamas, Bermuda, Guernsey and Scotland, and has been working with local advisers in Hong Kong in various substantial asset recovery, probate, estate administration and family provision matters. Professional directories recommend Mark as a leading junior in chancery, private client, trusts and probate and charity matters.

Mark has personal experience of charity administration as Joint Honorary Treasurer of the Barristers’ Benevolent Association and as a trustee of other charities. Chambers UK 2015 describes Mark as “an excellent draftsman and … very straightforward and direct about what he thinks. He is very clear about how he expresses his views” and states that “He is great because he doesn’t just scratch the surface, but gets to the bottom of the matter – he’s a very thoughtful lawyer”, “He knows his stuff inside-out and has a delicate sense of humour” and “His gravitas and knowledge are extraordinary and of great help to the court”.

Other recent editions of the professional directories have described Mark as “well versed in property, trusts and professional negligence matters” and have stated that he has “an encyclopaedic knowledge of trusts and estates”, is “a very good analyst, who cuts to the real issues of a case quickly and without any fuss” and is “excellent at reassuring difficult or anxious clients”. They have said that “commentators respect Mark Studer for his intelligence” and have described him as “popular with leading solicitors”, “a good team player and also considered very clear, quick and an excellent draftsman”, “solid and long established” and one who “impresses with his aptitude for the ultra-complex”. Mark is regarded as “meticulous and approachable”, and his drafting skills are noted as being “clear and to the point”. He is “a very erudite and academically sound barrister“.

Mark is listed in the Who’s Who Legal: UK Bar 2016 for Private Client.
