Having spent most of his working life as a corporate finance lawyer with leading law firms in the City of London and gained wide ranging experience in that field, Mark Cardale has developed a specialist expertise in corporate governance.
He first took a special interest in governance while working in New York at the time of Enron’s collapse, when he started to attend classes in the subject at New York University. On returning to London, he acted as a company law and governance adviser in major litigation concerning the insurance held by Enron’s bankers prior to its collapse.
He subsequently became a partner in a small law firm advising AIM companies on governance issues, and a charity trustee. This led to his being asked to co–author and edit a new edition of a leading textbook on governance, covering each of the corporate, charity and public sectors.
Mark has a wealth of experience working with boards in different situations, and has written and lectured extensively on corporate and charity governance and on related legal topics.
Mark is a qualified governance professional with ICSA: the Governance Institute, and is an External Examiner for the MSc in Corporate Governance at London South Bank University.
