It is with great pleasure that we announce that Mark O’Grady will be joining Hardwicke on 7th September 2020.
Mark has built up an impressive commercial practice covering not only general commercial disputes but also insolvency, construction and property litigation as well as professional negligence, company law and contentious probate.
Before coming to the Bar, Mark had a successful career in corporate finance, which included working as an analyst for JP Morgan in its UK Mergers and Acquisitions team. As a result, his expertise far exceeds his year of call (2016).
“We are delighted to welcome Mark,” says PJ Kirby QC, joint head of chambers and a leading commercial silk. “His particular experience will be an undoubted asset across Hardwicke’s main practice areas.”
“Mark’s arrival underlines our commercial credentials and the fact that the market views us as a leading commercial set,” adds Amanda Illing, CEO. “We are always keen to recruit established barristers like Mark who meet our high standards and who will help us continue the upward trajectory we currently enjoy.”
“Hardwicke is exactly the right place for me to continue to develop my practice,” says Mark. “It provides the perfect platform for my skill set. I was also attracted to Hardwicke’s reputation for developing individual members’ practices as well as its emphasis on wellbeing and commitment to EDI, CSR and pro bono work.”
