Mark joined the firm in 2018 after 11 years at the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) in Washington, D.C., where he investigated and litigated alleged violations of the U.S. antitrust laws. He resigned from the FTC and moved to Idaho to be closer to extended family and to raise his four children in the Idaho outdoors while instilling in them an Idahoan work ethic.

Mark’s experience as an attorney for the federal government provides him with wide and varied knowledge related to multiple areas of the law, such as trade associations, joint ventures, cooperatives, intellectual property, e-discovery, and government contracting. He has additional expertise in estate planning, water rights, and religious liberty issues.

Mark studied law and economics at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School in Arlington, Virginia. His studies included an externship at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. He believes his role as an attorney is to apply the law and principles of economics to help people and organizations solve their problems.
