Mark Hopwell


Mark was called to the Bar as a barrister in 1997 and obtained dual qualification as a solicitor in 2001 after joining Cartwright King Solicitors’ fraud team. He spent over 15 years ranked in the Legal 500 as a top fraud lawyer but also covered many high profile and complex regulatory cases, as well as conducting advocacy on numerous general crime matters. This has given him and an impressive ‘all round’ knowledge and experience base.

Mark was a partner at Cartwright King leading the fraud, regulatory and crime teams nationally, culminating in becoming Regional Managing Director in 2017.

Mark joined Richard Nelson in 2020 to focus on Professional Disciplinary and Regulatory for Healthcare and Educational professional cases.

He is also one of the few solicitors in the country who specialises in the removal of police cautions, helping those facing professional, career or travel difficulties from old or minor brushes with the law, to return to a clean record.

What Others Say

Mark Hopwell was extremely helpful and he had a lot of experience in his field. He was very easy to understand and he always kept me informed with the progress of my case. He is the man who guided me through the dark tunnel to the edge of light. I would definitely recommend Richard Nelson to friends or family.
