Mark is frequently hired by both private and public companies, and he is known as always being responsive and available to handle a query about a topic or concern. Consequently, clients hire Mark for as long as they are in the workplace – they know that he is up to speed on the latest issues of the day and anything related to employee benefits.

When disputes arise, Mark is the strategy leader, working closely with Gardere’s trial team on ERISA litigation matters. Mark also works closely with Gardere’s corporate team on M&A and equity compensation design and implementation matters.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
