North Adelaide resident | CBD commercial solicitor | Master of Laws (Commercial) and Master of Business Administration | Founded and runs two successful businesses | Extensive capital city council experience
Mark, a North Adelaide resident and a commercial solicitor practicing in the Adelaide CBD, has been passionate about Col. Light's original City of Adelaide (the Square Mile and North Adelaide encased in his wonderful Park Land legacy) since he moved into Lower North Adelaide with his family as a child.
An 11 year Adelaide City Council career, culminating in a term as Deputy Lord Mayor, quickly followed from age 28 until Mark "retired" at 39 - at an age when most people were only thinking of involvement in voluntary public service. Another 4 year term followed some years later.
Mark's passion for the City of Adelaide and the Adelaide City Council as a cultural institution, still burns brightly.
Mark lives with his family in Upper North Adelaide and practices as a commercial lawyer at the CBD law firm he founded and manages, Grope Hamilton Lawyers.
Believing in and enjoying life-long education, Mark is presently undertaking a Masters of Business Reseach, and a Ph.D. in business, building on his existing Master's degrees in Business and Law.
