‘Very commercial’ practice head Mark Tasker is ‘calm under pressure’
'Stellar' Mark Tasker is praised for his 'commercial acumen'
"Straightforward and plain speaking, he takes responsibility for getting the job done, as opposed to just going through the motions."
Selected as a super lawyer 2014.
Mark Tasker leads a ‘tightly knit’ team whose advice is ‘always clear and comprehensive’.
...he can roll his sleeves up and go deep into the details to make sure nothing slips through the cracks - a rare combination.
His proactive approach and willingness to take the initiative are mentioned by sources as just two of the reasons behind his success.
I head the firm’s Corporate and Commercial department and have more than 25 years’ experience of advising clients on corporate transactional work.
My focus is advising on both cross- border and domestic private company transactions including M&A, venture capital and private equity deals. I also work extensively on corporate fundraising including equity capital markets work, in particular AIM.
In addition, my experience includes handling joint ventures, shareholder agreements and group reorganisations and issues relating to shareholder disputes and share rights held by senior executives.
I am valued by clients for being commercial and pragmatic, avoiding the usual “shades of grey” advice and for making firm recommendations.
