Information on Mark’s Upcoming Full-Day Seminar
On Tuesday, May 24, Mark is hosting a full-day seminar in New York City. The seminar is based on material he has used for training the legal and procurement departments of many Fortune 500 companies. While he has spoken hundreds of times over the years, this is the first time he has ever done a full-day seminar open to all.
Topics include negotiating complex SaaS, cloud, licensing and outsourcing deals, as well as improving your legal drafting skills. Also included will be a segment that's always an audience pleaser called, "Retrain Your Brain - How to Become the Best Negotiator in the Room."
Attendance is limited to ensure there's plenty of time for heavy duty content and a discussion filled day. You will learn strategies and solutions and gain an in-depth understanding on norms and customs in these enterprise deals. You will hear a lot about "best practices," “judging risk to the enterprise" and will walk away with some useful template language. This will not be your typical "learn to spot the issues" kind of seminar.
Whether you work for or represent large enterprises, or you aspire to, this seminar is for you. While the focus will be on large enterprise deals, the strategies and solutions you will learn are appropriate for middle market deals too.
Mark’s practice focuses on enterprise IT and outsourcing deals. His clients have ranged from Fortune 100 companies to middle market companies in many diverse industries including car rental, oil and gas, automobile distribution and import, recording label, music distribution, supermarket, medical billing, insurance, hospital, and digital media. Mark also represents many technology companies and is an author and frequent speaker on technology, outsourcing, and the art of deal negotiation.
In 2015, The Best Lawyers in America announced that Mark was named the “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 earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism and integrity.
Mark 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.”
Further, his peers also selected Mark to be on the 2015 New York Super Lawyers list. Super Lawyers are those who were in top 5% of the vote in a state.
Mark is AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest level attainable, and has been a member of the New York City Bar’s Computer Law Committee and Florida Bar’s Computer Law Committee.
Mark started writing about technology law just as technology and the Internet were exploding. He began his writing career with PC World Magazine. Next, he started writing a weekly column called “CyberLaw” in South Florida’s “Daily Business Review.” Later, he renamed his column “TechLaw” and moved it to the Miami Herald where the column ran for many years.
Since the mid-1990’s, Mark has spoken to hundreds of groups domestically and internationally including multiple appearances at Georgetown University Law Center’s Advanced Computer Law Institute, COMDEX in Las Vegas, and seminars offered by the American Corporate Counsel Association and the Practicing Law Institute. He has also been a guest on many television and radio shows including ABC’s “Nightline.”
Mark authored the book Technology Law - What Every Business (and Business-Minded Person) Needs to Know.
Mark has written articles for several journals published by the New York Bar, Washington’s “Legal Times,” the “Texas Lawyer,” “The Recorder of San Francisco,” the “University of Texas School of Law Review of Litigation,” CIO Magazine, the New York Bar’s journal focused on in-house counsel called “Inside” and the Florida Bar’s “Computer Law Journal.” He also co-authored a chapter called “Web Development Agreements” in the American Bar Association’s book titled Internet Law for the Business Lawyer.
