Mark Ridley

Partner

I am a Partner in the Dispute Resolution department.

My Areas of Work

My expertise is in the following areas:

  • Commercial disputes
  • Inheritance disputes
  • Property disputes

My Experience

I qualified as a solicitor in 2010 and since then I have practised dispute resolution, exclusively. 

Before then, I graduated from the University of Leeds with a degree in Economics and spent 4 years working outside the legal services sector for a FTSE 100 company.  As a consequence, I am able to draw upon first-hand experience when meeting the requirements of commercial clients.   My commercial practice extends to include expertise in a variety of different dispute resolution areas including contract, misrepresentation, shareholder disputes, property, and intellectual property.

I also acts for individuals, and have considerable experience advising clients in connection with contentious wills, trusts and probate – including 1975 Act applications.  In addition, I have resolved many cases involving co-owner disputes, landlord and tenant disputes and rights of way disputes.

I acted successfully for a client in the reported case of Watson v Sadiq and another [2015] EWHC 3403 (QB).

Professional Associations

I am a member of The Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS).
