I want my clients to say that I’m as careful a counselor to them as I am fierce an advocate for them.

For more than 20 years, Mark David has represented companies and individuals in their most difficult and complex legal disputes. He has served as a trusted advisor as companies and individuals navigate regulatory or internal investigations, and he has advocated for his clients in high-stakes litigation—including numerous trials and appeals. While Mark David’s subject matter expertise includes state and federal securities laws, federal transportation law, RICO, the Alien Tort Statute, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, and deceptive practices statutes, his focus has turned most recently to cases or investigations involving data security incidents and privacy laws.

Mark David has an active pro bono practice, particularly focused on immigration rights. He has helped two refugees obtain asylum in the US, won a Second Circuit appeal saving an immigrant from removal proceedings, and submitted amicus briefs to federal appeals courts (including the Supreme Court) on behalf of immigrant rights’ groups in several high-profile cases.
