Mark concentrates his practice on complex commercial litigation, with a particular focus on the insurance and financial services industries. He personally invests himself in every matter and customizes his approach to the risk tolerance and business objectives at hand.
Using this tailored approach, Mark has obtained favorable results for his clients for more than 20 years. Much of Mark’s work involves high-stakes litigation for clients within the insurance industry. He has represented insurers in bet-the-company fraud cases, insurance coverage claims involving hundreds of millions of dollars, and reinsurance disputes testing novel allocation and notice issues.
Mark also represents clients in post-closing disputes arising from alleged fraud and breaches of representations and warranties in the course of mergers and acquisitions.
Mark maintains an active pro bono practice. He has successfully represented clients from the Lawyers for the Creative Arts and the National Immigrants Justice Center, including a recent victory, following trial, on behalf of a man seeking asylum and relief under the Convention against Torture. In 2017 Mark worked with the Illinois Torture Inquiry and Reconciliation Commission to submit a recommendation that the Illinois Circuit Court grant a new trial to a man incarcerated for a capital offense based on credible evidence that the prisoner’s confession was coerced.
