Mark Regan has a criminal law jury trial, plea and appeals practice in the County and Supreme Courts, with associated appearances in the Magistrates' Court such as committals. He also appears at Inquests and tribunals. He has previously practiced in several criminal law firms, followed by 13 years with the Victorian OPP, private practice at the Victorian Bar since 2005, and over 3 years with Victoria Legal Aid as a Senior Public Defender.

His criminal law practicing experience is therefore extensive and diverse. Mark very regularly accepts briefs from the Victorian OPP, is also a Victoria Legal Aid Criminal Trial Preferred Barrister, and is the holder of a current Victorian Bar Indictable Crime Certificate (ICC). 

Appearing consistently in jury trials since 1998, cases include offences against the person, property offences, commercial crime, drug offences, sex offences and homicides. Some noteworthy recent cases include Dupas (2007 & 2010); Desmond "Tuppence" Moran (2011); Chartwell Enterprises (2010) ($63M); Opes Prime (2012-13) (stock market collapse case - $600M).

He has substantial experience in presenting as well as defending intricate and complex telephone-intercept-based commercial and large-commercial drug cases, as well as prosecuting and defending complex commercial crime cases. He has also done drug importation cases, and, in recent years has appeared in people smuggling cases.

Particular specific professional interests include firearms and tool-mark examination, edged weapons, explosives, DNA, blood spatter interpretation, fingerprints, listening devices and warrants, and cell-phone and GPS tracking.

Mark is also familiar with current aviation regulation and enforcement (particularly general and recreational aviation), consolidating on his much earlier experience with both military and civil aviation.
