With a keen understanding of the complex derivatives market, Mark Sherrill focuses primarily on the physical and financial trading of energy commodities. He counsels energy companies and commodity traders on the interrelationships of bankruptcy, derivatives and the Dodd-Frank Act. Mark's knowledge of the various issues involved in derivatives and related matters make him a prominent player in many of the country's largest bankruptcy cases, particularly those affecting the energy and commodity markets. He works with energy companies, broker-dealers and hedge funds on various complex transactions, including asset-based structured transactions, agreements for the purchase and sale of energy and commodities and other over-the-counter derivatives.

Mark advises clients to manage their various risks associated with their derivatives positions, including as part of companies' efforts to adjust to the various rules implemented as a result of the Dodd-Frank regime. He also aids companies in evaluating credit and liquidity risks. Prior to joining the firm, Mark served as a law clerk for the Honorable Randolph Baxter of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
