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, class actions, commercial, antitrust, employment, insurance coverage, malpractice and other 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.
