Over the last 35 years, Mark has mediated, managed and resolved hundreds of cases ranging from intellectual property, antitrust and other business disputes to real estate, class and individual consumer and employment cases. Over this period, Mark has earned Martindale Hubbell’s highest rating and been named among the Best Lawyers in America for Mediation for successive years.
Mark’s approach is shaped by having worn virtually all professional hats in the legal arena – as a litigator representing plaintiffs and defendants, a general counsel resolving hundreds of litigation matters, a senior corporate executive as well as a client. Central to all that work was helping decision makers of all types make realistic, risk-based choices based upon alternative scenarios and the practical tradeoffs of pursuing different courses. As a mediator, Mark uses all those experiences to help craft appropriate resolutions for everyone.
Along with mediating later stage civil actions, Mark actively assists parties with early dispute resolution (EDR) efforts, having built very successful EDR programs at his former companies. His effectiveness as a mediator was the subject of a 2016 profile by The Daily Journal.
