Mark has practiced in the city of Ottawa exclusively in the area of civil litigation since 1985. Through his insurance defence practice, he acts for a range of property and casualty carriers throughout Eastern Ontario. Mark also acts for a number of carriers on behalf of specialized insureds, including local municipalities, and the Ottawa Carleton Regional Police Services Board. Several of these cases, in particular involving the Police Services Board, have been high profile and sensitive in nature.

As part of his civil litigation practice, Mark also acts for a range of clients involved in construction disputes in the Ottawa area. He is regularly involved with the Ottawa Construction Association, providing seminars and advice on various topics.

Mark has extensive trial experience, both jury and non-jury, and has appeared regularly before Appellate Courts, including the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. Many of his cases have been reported, the most notable being his Supreme Court of Canada decision in Herbison v. Lumberman's Mutual Casualty Co., a case involving the interpretation of "the use or operation of an automobile" for the purposes of determining insurance coverage under a motor vehicle liability policy.
