V-Card

Over the last decade, Mark has represented both Plaintiffs and Defendants in all phases of complex litigation—from the investigation and filing of the complaint through discovery, motion practice, class certification, summary judgment, and trial or settlement.  Since joining Wexler Wallace in 2006, his practice has included handling a wide variety of consumer protection, antitrust, securities, banking regulation, business and contractual class action cases.  In addition to his background in commercial and consumer litigation, his practice has evolved to focus on products liability mass torts; and he has recently played pivotal roles in the jury trials of several mass tort MDL cases.  His work in those cases included working with experts, taking fact and expert witness depositions, participating on bellwether trial teams, and drafting much of the briefing addressing complex discovery, pre-trial and post-trial motions.

APPOINTED & REPRESENTATIVE POSITIONS

Mark was appointed as co-lead class counsel in Carter v. Allstate Insurance Company, Case No. 02 CH 16092 (Cir. Ct. Cook Co.), a breach of insurance contract case which resulted in a class-wide settlement and recovery for consumers in 37 states. He also was served as Law and Briefing Chair in In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2325
