With over thirty years of legal experience, including extensive work as a plaintiff and defense counsel, two prior general counsel positions for public and private companies, and as an appointed mediator for the federal courts, Mark has a unique perspective to share. Sitting in all these respective roles has given Mark a broad understanding of how disputes get stuck, as well as how to sort through and overcome those real or perceived obstacles – both early in the course of litigation and at later stages. As well, his substantive legal knowledge of a wide array of disputes – intellectual property, commercial, antitrust, employment, insurance coverage, privacy and other consumer matters – enables him to help counsel and clients best understand and handicap risks and rewards. Finally, his work as a litigator, client, general counsel, and mediator allows him to help craft solutions and alternatives that can work all around.
Mark conducts mediations throughout California and the United States.
Mark also serves as an arbitrator for business, employment, intellectual property and other commercial disputes.
