Mark Beer OBE

Decoding the Future



Mark Beer OBE is a speaker, strategic advisor and independent non-executive director. He brings 3 decades of international experience to cut through complexity, delivering clear, focussed and pragmatic advice.

Mark is a solution orientated, innovative and client-centric lawyer with experience working in big law firms, in-house, in finance, in Government and in the judiciary.

Mark’s extensive, global and diverse experience allows him to find answers where others find problems, and has led him to be twice named as one of the 'Top 50 most influential Brits in the UAE', as one of the 100 most influential people in Dubai and by Forbes Middle East as one of the top 50 most influential expats in the UAE.

Mark was appointed an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in her 2013 Birthday honours list for his work in strengthening relations between the UK and the UAE, was twice shortlisted by the Law Society of England and Wales as the UK's Solicitor of the Year – In-House, and in 2018, Mark was awarded The Association of Corporate Counsel Middle East Achievement Award for his work in developing Dubai's judicial system.










Perhaps the last important piece put into place, administratively, during these early years occurred in 2008 with the naming of Mark Beer as the judiciary’s full-time, Dubai-based Registrar. In many ways Beer’s appointment helped further elevate the global presence, power and prestige of the DIFC Courts. Over the years, Beer’s reputation within the legal and business community has been stellar. He is thought of as brilliant, honest, charismatic, and eloquent, and someone who is seen as having boundless, optimistic energy."
