I chose Taylor English because the firm understands that people matter, irrespective of whether it is a small business or a Fortune 500 company. Working here allows me to roll out the red carpet for everyone.
Natalie Mark is a problem solver. By listening to her clients and then asking them the right questions, she is able to give them the best legal advice for their situations. One of her clients wanted to make her interim chief operating officer for a settlement negotiation where only corporate officers could attend because the CEO of the company so valued her problem-solving skills. She explained that her attendance was not necessary to protect the company’s interest.
Her practice focuses on the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), fraud, antitrust, breach of contract, securities, internal investigations and other commercial litigation. Ms. Mark is licensed to practice in Georgia as well as in the District of Columbia, and she has experience in both federal and state courts.
Prior to joining Taylor English, Ms. Mark served as an associate and as a summer associate at Clifford Chance US LLP in Washington, from June 2006 through August 2009, where she represented clients in a broad range of matters, including complex class-action and multiparty disputes, as well as U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigations and global internal investigations concerning violations of Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regulations.
Ms. Mark also has extensive e-discovery experience, and has managed global discovery in a case involving more than 50 jurisdictions.
When not practicing law, Ms. Mark enjoys spending time with her husband, Godfrey, their two energetic toddlers, Noelle and Ethan, as well as their music-loving Shih Tzu, Jazz.
