Using his electrical engineering background, Mark has secured patents for semiconductor devices and semiconductor manufacturing processes, GPS asset tracking systems, license plate recognition systems, vibration monitoring and analysis systems, medical devices, medical device inventory management software, electro-optic devices, inkjet and laser printers, X-ray imaging systems, ultrasonic test instruments, communication systems, radiation detection systems, employment law compliance software, programmable hearing aids, fluid waste treatment systems, and golf club analysis software.

Mark counsels clients regarding management of intellectual property portfolios, protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights, and defense against charges of intellectual property infringement. This includes the preparation of opinions on patent and trademark freedom-to-practice issues and patentability of inventions, and assisting clients with intellectual property due diligence. Mark also negotiates and prepares patent and trademark license agreements for clients seeking to monetize their intellectual property rights.

In his litigation practice, Mark has represented plaintiffs and defendants in patent cases involving a wide range of technologies, including vehicle diagnostic monitoring systems, GPS tracking systems, and furniture products.

Mark joined LuedekaNeely as a law clerk in 1996. He became an associate of the firm in 1998 and a shareholder in 2002.

Before becoming a lawyer, Mark was an electrical engineer with Lockheed Martin in Orlando, Florida, where he designed and tested antennas, radomes, and low-observable structures for missiles and aircraft. His design tasks included a millimeter-wave radar seeker antenna and "frequency-tuned" radome for the U.S. Army's AGM-114L Longbow Hellfire radar-guided missile. Mark also participated in the design, testing and integration of an antenna and radome structure used in the target-designation radar system of the U.S. Army's AH-64A/D Longbow Apache helicopter. He also did system-level analysis and testing of millimeter-wave radar systems, including testing of the Longbow Hellfire radar seeker in the Millimeter-wave Simulation System at the Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. In recognition of his work on low-observable and frequency-tuned radome structures, Mark was named Engineer of the Year of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society of Orlando, FL.
