Mark is a seasoned business attorney with in-house experience at both emerging and publicly traded companies and private-practice experience at premier regional law firms. Mark uses this experience to deliver corporate counsel services, on an as-need basis, for a substantially lower cost than hiring a full-time, senior level general counsel or relying on experienced business attorneys at large firms.
Benefits of Outside GC Services:
• With his extensive in-house and M&A experience, Mark is able to quickly and thoroughly
learn a client's business and use this knowledge to deliver high-quality, proactive,
business-focused and cost-effective legal work.
• As a sole practitioner, Mark will not delegate work to other attorneys who are unfamiliar with
the client's business or legal needs, and will be able to better develop working relationships
with the client's business team.
• Mark can help his clients identify specialized legal needs (e.g., patents, securities, regulatory
compliance, and litigation), assist with referrals to his trusted network of specialized lawyers at
larger law firms, and help define the scope of and coordinate work with the client's outside law firm.
• General counsel services are provided for substantially less than the cost of hiring a full time legal
staff or what law firms typically charge for comparable experience. Mark's services are provided
as needed, and Mark can be available on-site if desired.
