Kirkland & Ellis LLP
Mark Holscher’s 30-year career has cemented him as one of California’s most creative and winning trial attorneys. In 2018, the American College of Trial Lawyers and the International Academy of Trial Lawyers inducted Holscher as a Fellow. Clients describe him as “great on his feet, very strategic and always available.” Another client remarked that he is “a go-to litigator for tough matters.”
As a nationally recognized trial lawyer, Holscher represents clients in their most significant matters across an array of industries. These matters range from securities litigation and white-collar and regulatory investigations, to trade secret and high-profile employment disputes. For example, Holscher defended Sydney Holland in a $150 million civil action brought by Sumner Redstone, the former Executive Chairman of Viacom Inc. and CBS Corporation, which alleged claims of elder abuse, breach of fiduciary duty and fraud. Holscher and team negotiated a settlement for Holland resulting in dismissal of all claims.
