Mark practices in the firm's business litigation group, where he represents both plaintiffs and defendants in complex civil litigation. His practice includes class actions, contract disputes, business torts, and consumer fraud actions.
Mark also serves on the Local Rules Committee for the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois and regularly practices in that venue. Although his practice includes handling cases in several states and federal courts, Mark regularly appears in venues in Southern Illinois, such as Madison County and St. Clair County.
Prior to joining Thompson Coburn, Mark clerked for United Sates District Judge G. Patrick Murphy and worked as a prosecutor in Madison County. While working as a prosecutor, Mark tried multiple cases to verdict. Mark uses the valuable insight he gained while clerking for Judge Murphy along with his experience as a prosecutor to represent his clients at Thompson Coburn.
