His areas of expertise cover computer hardware and software, artificial intelligence and machine learning, medical devices, and mechanical technologies. In addition to obtaining hundreds of issued patents for his clients, Mark’s practice at FIG. 1 focuses on building strong, competitor relevant portfolios through claim charting and directed prosecution. He has been recognized as a Super Lawyers Rising Star each of the past three years (2018, 2019 and 2020).

Mark is one of the founders of FIG. 1, and is focused on building a modern patent law firm that delivers exceptional patent services through an emphasis on recruiting and training the best team in patent law and investing in technology in order to increase the quality of the patents prepared and prosecuted by the firm.

Outside of patent law, Mark enjoys going on adventures with his wife Jenni and his two young sons Jack (age 8) and Wyatt (age 5). An entrepreneur at heart, he is also one of the founders of Farmgirlfit, a gym designed specifically for women with locations in Spokane, WA and Coeur d’Alene, ID.
