He is counsel for many construction industry clients, including owners (both public and private), developers, prime contractors, construction managers, specialty trade contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and manufacturers.

His transactional work involves all phases of negotiating and drafting contracts, subcontracts and purchase orders and assisting clients in responding to RFPs.

His construction litigation focuses on prosecuting and defending claims that include contract disputes, delay, acceleration and scheduling issues, construction defects, differing site conditions, mechanic’s lien and public works claims and bid protests before state and federal courts, arbitration (sole arbitrator and arbitration panels) and governmental boards.

Representative work includes clients who work on public, private and P3 construction projects involving commercial, infrastructure (heavy highway, roadways, tunneling, airports, transportation and wick drains), industrial, institutional, alternative energy and residential projects.

Mark is a member of the construction industry panel of arbitrators of the American Arbitration Association and has served as a sole arbitrator and arbitration panel member in construction related arbitrations.
