Managing Director

While boutique in size, Mission Legal’s senior foreign lawyers are highly qualified and have extensive experience working in international top-tier law firms and major corporates. Mission’s structure – and our quality, compliance and service ethic - allow for close supervision and support by senior experienced lawyers in all client services activities.

In addition to our in-house team, we also work with a pool of experienced foreign and local lawyers based in Myanmar and around the region – with subject matter and/or jurisdictional expertise – to assign the appropriate resources for your matter or create specialist teams with the right mix of skills and experience to support the execution of your project. Our virtual consultant approach to legal services allows Mission Legal to provide flexible, specialist resourcing at a competitive price point.

The delivery of our legal services is supervised by Mission Legal’s founder and Managing Director, Mark Livingston. Mark manages Mission’s operations and legal services – assigning, creating and supervising the firm’s in-house and specialist virtual consultant resources from its pool of experienced foreign and local lawyers.

Mark is a veteran of the Myanmar legal industry. Mark’s career spans 20 years of varied corporate, commercial and projects work in Myanmar, Australia, Singapore and around Asia – with ten years of experience as a corporate advisor and private practice lawyer in Myanmar, where he has lived and worked full time since 2014 - previously in Yangon and now based in Naypyitaw.

He has extensive experience in managing and resolving legal, regulatory and operational issues in developing markets, with a focus on natural resources projects, executing fundraising transactions, and implementing good corporate governance and compliance practices.

This experience in the corporate sector affords Mark a deep understanding of the commercial drivers of his clients’ businesses and gives Mission Legal a valuable commercial and practical perspective on providing legal services to both foreign and domestic businesses.
