The Best Lawyers in America (www.bestlawyers.com) named Mark “Lawyer of the Year” for Technology Law in New York City for 2016. Each year, Best Lawyers names a single lawyer in each specialty in each community as a “Lawyer of the Year.” Those honored have received particularly outstanding ratings in the surveys by their peers by earning a high level of respect for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.

He has appeared on “The Best Lawyers in America” list since 2003. Since Best Lawyers bases its choices on a confidential peer-review survey in which over 25,000 leading attorneys cast about two million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties, and because lawyers are not allowed to pay a listing fee, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

He is a member of the National Speakers Association, a collective of speaking professionals that includes experts in a variety of industries and disciplines. He has also been a guest on many television and radio shows including CNBC’s “Closing Bell,” Bloomberg TV’s “Bloomberg West,” and ABC’s “Nightline.” Since the mid-1990’s, he has spoken to hundreds of groups domestically and internationally including multiple appearances at Georgetown University Law Center’s Advanced Computer Law Institute and seminars offered by the Association for Corporate Counsel and the Practicing Law Institute.
