An author and frequent invited speaker at national class action seminars, Mark’s most recent professional publication was the chapter on arbitration in the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education’s Treatise on Commercial Litigation.

For more than 30 years, Mark has devoted a portion of his practice to assisting clients in complying with government agencies that regulate the manufacturing, sale and labelling of products, for industrial and consumer products. Those regulators and regulations domestically include the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the National Highway Transportation Safety Authority, the Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Communications Commission, Proposition 65, and Toxics in Packaging.
