Mark Tushingham

Mark Tushingham

Call: 2012 (New Zealand); 2016 (England and Wales)

Languages: Spanish (conversational)

Mark has a broad practice in commercial law, international arbitration and public international law. He has acted for corporations and State entities in a wide variety of disputes at all levels of the English courts and in international arbitrations under all major institutional rules.

Mark is currently instructed in high-profile litigation raising important questions of international law and foreign relations law arising out of Venezuela’s constitutional and political crisis and the battle for control of Venezuela’s gold reserves at the Bank of England as well as other assets located in England. He is representing the Ad-Hoc Board of the Central Bank of Venezuela (appointed by Interim President Guaidó). An appeal will be heard in the Supreme Court later this year.

Before joining the English Bar in 2016, Mark practised as a barrister in New Zealand at a leading commercial set. He also worked as a law clerk for two leading international arbitrators, where he gained exposure to many international commercial arbitrations and investment treaty arbitrations.

Mark holds degrees in both Law and Accounting from the University of Auckland, where he wrote his dissertation thesis on damages in international investment arbitration. Mark also holds a Bachelor of Civil Law degree from the University of Oxford where he obtained a Distinction and the prize for the highest examination mark in the International Law of the Sea course.
