Mark Taylor LL.B(Hons) LL.M

Mark started his career at one of the nation’s largest HR companies advising blue chip clients. After gaining experience Mark opted for the cut and thrust of contentious work. In 2004 he moved to Accountax Consulting and was instrumental in the growth of Accountax Employment Law (where he became a Partner) and the development of services complementary to the tax advice already provided. Later Mark became Operations Director at Accountax forming the management team with Matt Boddington.

In January 2013 Mark formed a new legal services practice with his co-director Matt Boddington. Mark & Matt’s vision is to use their combined 30 years’ experience, their successes in hundreds of Tribunal cases, and their in depth frontline knowledge to provide a service that is simply second to none.

Mark has a law degree and later completed his Masters in Employment Relations Law at Leicester University. During his career Mark has set himself apart from other employment law advisers by developing an advice style that fuses legal accuracy with commercial realism ensuring his clients benefit from a well-rounded perspective.

Mark believes passionately that as an adviser he should not hide behind his desk. With this in mind, Mark represents his clients in the Employment Tribunal and the Employment Appeal Tribunal himself. This guarantees that the advice he gives is not just straight from a textbook but has been forged in the heat of battle. Mark has successfully represented clients in hundreds of cases in the Employment Tribunal and the Employment Appeal Tribunal on issues including holiday pay, discrimination, dismissal and TUPE.

Mark has lectured nationally on employment law matters to accountants, construction companies, umbrella companies and lawyers. Mark believes in using lectures to enable his clients by providing them with constructive and practical advice that they can apply to their own businesses and to their own clients. Mark has also authored for a number of construction and HR publications.

Mark believes advisers should be easily accessible, commercially orientated, dedicated to excellence and client focused. His philosophy is that if he is prepared to give clients advice then he should be prepared to stand by that advice in the Tribunals.

Mark appears regularly in the Employment Tribunal and the Employment Appeal Tribunal and has hundreds of successes to his name – see for example Archer-Hoblin Contractors Ltd v MacGettigan in which Mark successfully argued for the self-employed status of a steel fixer.  Employment Tribunal judgments are not published and cannot be reported without the party’s consent.
