Mark Cheskin is a litigation partner working out of Hogan Lovells’ Miami office.
In his 30 years of practice, Mark successfully has taken dozens of significant disputes to final arbitral award, jury verdict or final judgment in numerous domestic and international jurisdictions. He has also worked on more than 40 class action cases in his career.
Mark handles a broad range of cases, from international business disputes to defending class actions involving tens of thousands of plaintiffs. He has experience representing clients from virtually every sector of the economy, including construction, finance, retail, travel, construction, energy, communications, higher education, healthcare, professional, agriculture and technology.
While Mark takes a bottom-line approach to resolving clients' problems, he goes to trial when the need arises. His ability as a jury trial lawyer was highlighted when he obtained a $2.5 million jury verdict on behalf of a pro bono client in a case against the US Department of Homeland Security. Mark received the Daily Business Review’s designation as South Florida's Most Effective Lawyer in the pro bono category for this representation.
Mark also is one of the few defence lawyers in the country to defend class action cases through jury verdict. Within one six-month period, Mark obtained successful jury verdicts in two different, month-long class action jury trials, where tens of thousands of plaintiffs sought more than $70 million in back pay damages. The National Law Journal included the victories in its "Top Ten Defense Wins" list for that year.
