Mark joined Appleby in September 2010 as a trainee, qualifying two years later as a Manx Advocate. Since then, Mark has appeared regularly at all levels of the Isle of Man High Court of Justice and practices a broad range of commercial litigation. Mark has particular expertise in banking litigation and the practicalities of enforcing judgments in the Isle of Man, and acts for many of the banks on the Isle of Man in respect of their mortgage enforcement and the pursuit of personal guarantees.

He was recommended by Legal 500 UK 2016 for his employment work, as well as Chambers UK 2017, which highlighted him as a “Notable Practitioner” with clients noting his “impressive and concise” presentation.

Mark said: “I joined Appleby over eight years ago as a trainee. From day one the firm has enabled me to grow and develop my skills; it is an honour to be promoted to Senior Associate and to be taking the next step in my career.”

Erin joined Appleby in October 2015 after gaining several years’ experience at an offshore firm in Guernsey. She practices a broad range of commercial litigation and specialises in trust disputes including advising trustees and beneficiaries on a wide range of contentious trust and estate issues.

Having successfully completed the STEP Advanced Certificate in Trust Disputes, Erin is an associate member of STEP (Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners), as well as ConTrA (The Contentious Trusts Association).

Erin commented: “I am delighted to be promoted to Senior Associate at Appleby after three successful years with the firm. Working at Appleby has enabled me to work on complex, multi-jurisdictional matters, and I look forward to many more years with the firm.”

Mark Holligon, Partner and Group Head of the Dispute Resolution department in the Isle of Man, added: “Mark and Erin are two excellent advocates and this promotion is a testament to their hard work, professionalism and expertise. I’d like to congratulate them both on becoming Senior Associates.”

Mark continued: “As a leading law firm in a competitive industry, it is critical to have the highest calibre of individuals on board to ensure we continue to provide the very best levels of service. These promotions highlight just how strong our team of professionals is.”

Operating in the Isle of Man for over 115 years, Appleby has the largest corporate and dispute resolution teams on the island, capable of handling high value, complex work.
