Mark’s expertise as a Certified Fraud Examiner and Certified Information Privacy Professional gives clients a cutting-edge perspective on emerging bankruptcy issues.

“Mark’s Bankruptcy practice and experience are invaluable.

His clients include domestic and international companies and investment groups, with a particular focus on the technology sector. Jeff has in-depth experience in venture capital and private equity investments, mergers & acquisitions, debt financings, joint ventures, strategic licensing, benefit corporations (B corps), and corporate governance matters.
