Serjeants’ Inn welcomes latest Silk arrival, Mark Harries QC

20th October 2020

Serjeants’ Inn is pleased to announce that Mark Harries QC has joined our flourishing Business and Specialist Crime Team, building on the senior expertise already available to clients in this field. This is part of our strategy to enhance the service we are able to provide, significantly consolidating our expertise in our core fields.

Ranked as a leading practitioner by both legal directories, Mark specialises in business and financial crime, professional discipline and regulatory work, in particular in the medical, legal and financial sectors. An “outstanding advocate” with “gallons of charm” who is known for his “phenomenal way of cutting through to the heart of a case“, he provides a first class service for private client individuals accused of fraud, serious crime and professional misconduct.

He also has a wealth of experience defending murder and manslaughter cases.

Mark comments, “I am delighted to be joining Serjeants’ Inn Chambers in my 25th year of practice. The opportunity to work with outstanding practitioners at the forefront of a wide range of fields was irresistible; it’s obviously and transparently a set of chambers that prides itself on teamwork across the board, in which barristers are supported by an infrastructure of management, clerking and marketing that is unique at the Bar in its structure and its exceptional quality.”

Sarah Clarke QC, Head of the Business and Specialist Crime Team, notes, “We are delighted that Mark is joining us to help support our clients, in particular in relation to business and specialist crime and professional discipline matters but also across other core areas of our practice. With increasingly blurred lines between disciplines in the modern legal world, the ability to advise on criminal law implications, alongside governance and reputational issues, informs our ability to assist, for example, our inquest, inquiries and investigations clients. As our fifth financial and regulatory crime recruit in just over 2 years, Mark enhances the advancing expertise we provide to private, insurance-backed and institutional clients alike.”

For further details, please see Mark’s full profiles which are available here. Please contact our Senior Clerk, Lee Johnson, on 0207 427 5002 if you need any further information about Mark’s work or would like to discuss how he might assist you.
