Mark T. Cramer
Mark T. Cramer is a shareholder in the Los Angeles office and chair of the firm’s Class Action Practice Group. Cramer advises clients ranging from Fortune 50 corporations to start-up companies about how to manage actual and potential business disputes in the context of their overall business goals. He works to formulate and implement customized litigation strategies. For example, where the client’s primary business interest was to resolve litigation to make the company more attractive to a prospective buyer, he negotiated a quick and favorable settlement to eliminate the exposure associated with the lawsuit. By contrast, when a large company was concerned that it was developing the reputation of being an easy mark for frivolous litigation, Cramer engineered a hard-nosed and aggressive defense that resulted in a complete victory for the client and sent a message that the company would rather pay its attorneys than settle meritless claims.
