Biography

An active toxic tort trial attorney, Mark protects the interests of large manufacturers and small businesses in state and federal courts from coast to coast. He is a member of Husch Blackwell's Technology, Manufacturing & Transportation team and defends clients in cases alleging chemical exposure and release of substances such as asbestos, acids and rocket fuel (hydrazine). He also defends cases relating to a wide range of vehicular products pertaining to over-the-road and off-highway vehicles. He has extensive experience with industrial equipment and components, including gaskets, compressors, turbines, presses, and hydraulic and electrical equipment. He reaches cost-effective and favorable resolutions for various clients' exposure lawsuits, with many of these cases defended in difficult jurisdictions for defendant corporations.

As a national trial counsel, Mark directs the day-to-day management of clients' toxic tort litigation across the country. He works with defense experts and develops and implements defense strategies and oversees discovery efforts.

Mark has tried various cases in the areas of product liability, malicious prosecution, contract disputes and employment discrimination with favorable results. Among his accomplishments in asbestos litigation is a ruling from the Tennessee courts that a valve manufacturer should not be liable for external insulation under Tennessee law.

In the healthcare industry, Mark's experience is concentrated on the delivery of services by professionals, hospitals, laboratories and other medical service providers. He has managed litigation alleging negligence in medical testing and also has substantial experience with pharmaceutical products.
