Mark Tushingham has Accepted an Offer of Tenancy at 20 Essex Street

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

20 Essex Street is delighted to announce that Mark Tushingham has accepted an offer of tenancy on completion of his pupillage.

Mark has gained a good breadth of experience in both domestic and international commercial litigation and arbitration, as well as in investment treaty arbitrations through his pupillage at 20 Essex Street, his time in practise as a barrister in New Zealand, working as a law clerk for Sir David Williams QC and as research assistant for Hong Kong based arbitrator Dr Michael Moser (also of 20E Essex Street).

During his pupillage at 20 Essex Street Mark worked on a number of high profile and high value commercial cases including Chugai Pharmaceutical Co Ltd v UCB Pharma SA, a challenge to the English court’s jurisdiction to hear claims relating to a pharmaceutical license agreement; Kyokuyo Co Ltd v AP Moller-Maersk A/S, a cargo claim raising issues on the compulsory application of the Hague-Visby Rules and its package limitation provision; and Sabbagh v Khoury, an appeal against an application under s 9 of the Arbitration Act 1996 for a stay of court proceedings in reliance on a Lebanese-seated arbitration agreement.

Mark is a graduate of the University of Auckland, where he obtained degrees in Commerce and Law (Honours). He is also a graduate of the University of Oxford, where he obtained a Distinction on the BCL.

Christopher Hancock QC and Duncan Matthews QC, 20 Essex Street’s co-heads of Chambers, said:

“We are very pleased to welcome Mark as our newest member of Chambers. Our offer of tenancy is necessarily hard-earned and indicates he has achieved the very high standards we demand in pupillage. We have no doubt of his future success at the Bar and wish him well for his developing practice.”
