Mark Bross joined the firm as Of Counsel in 2016.   He has significant experience helping clients resolve a broad range of commercial and business disputes including claims for breach of contract, unfair and deceptive trade practices, employment issues, intellectual property claims and shareholder and partner disputes.  Mark has represented clients in both state and federal courts throughout the country and has also appeared in matters arbitrated by JAMS, FINRA, and ARIAS. 

Representative Matters Include:

  • Assisted technology solutions company in enforcement of restrictive covenant against former employee that resulted in landmark First Circuit case affirming injunction for breach of non-solicitation and non-disclosure covenants.  Aggressive and timely factual development and legal analysis led to the district court’s enforcement of the injunction and a well reasoned and supported First Circuit brief resulted in continued enforcement of the injunction.
