Foley & Lardner Grab a Partner with Unique Experience
Foley & Lardner, one of the heaviest hitting law firms in the country, has picked up a new attorney, Mark S. Mandel, a man with wide-ranging experience in both the private and public sector. Mandel joins Foley’s Securities Enforcement & Litigation Practice in New York.
“Mark’s wealth of experience with major securities-related litigation and proven track record in obtaining favorable results aligns well with the high-level of service our department provides to clients surrounding these high-stakes matters,” said Michael J. Tuteur, chair of the Litigation Department at Foley. “He arrives with a deep understanding and specialty knowledge of the securities industry, which broadens our capabilities in complex litigation matters.”
The wealth of experience that Tuteur mentioned includes 20 years of work with investment banks, corporate investment advisors, hedge funds, and even working with the U.S Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Department of Justice, and other high profile cases. His most recent work was with New York’ Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP, and he’s also served as chief of the New York office of the SEC’s Division of the Broker-Dealer Enforcement. The sheer diversity of his experience, as well as the amount of time spent on high profile, high interest cases filled out his resume well, and lead him to be of interest to Foley.
“Foley’s New York office was founded on the strength of its highly regarded litigation practice, and we are thrilled to add Mark’s unique experience in the financial services industry as we continue to expand our litigation and corporate legal services,” said Peter N. Wang, managing partner of Foley’s New York office. “Mark’s comprehensive knowledge of the regulatory landscape, government investigations and securities compliance will strengthen the delivery of our customized services.”
For his part, Mark sees Foley as the next stage in his career to bring his game to a new level. “Foley’s exceptional and innovative client service model is an ideal environment as I continue to evolve my legal career,” said Mandel. “Having spent time in both private and public roles allows me to take on client matters with the multi-dimensional perspective needed to generate the best possible legal outcome.”
Sounds like a career of ideal aggrandizement in legal powers, the sort of person most likely to interest Foley & Lardner, a firm having 21 offices with over 900 attorneys, a winner of various awards and honors including 20 national first-tier rankings on the 2013 U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” list.
