“I have known Mark nearly twenty years. He is a "no nonsense" and aggressive litigator. He also is a practical fellow who
constantly works to find solutions to client problems. Mark is definitely one of the best labor and employment attorneys of
this generation.”- Greg R.
“Mark is one of the most well-prepared, thoughtful attorneys I have the pleasure to know. Understands both the issues
and the motivations of the parties on both sides of a case. A strong person to have on your side.” - John Q.
“Mark is one of the smartest people I know and an excellent litigator. He is extremely skilled at assessing the strengths
and weaknesses of his client's and his opponent's cases and exploiting the other side's weaknesses, in an efficient manner
and to reach a great result. If I had an employment law case in New Jersey, I would hire Mark in a heartbeat.” - Andrew S.
“I had the pleasure of working with Mark when we were both attorneys at Epstein, Becker and Green, and most recently at
Eisai. Mark is an excellent litigator. In addition to his skill at developing and executing litigation strategy, Mark always
had an excellent command of the facts of each of his cases. He could recall with ease virtually every factoid or nuance
offered by a particular witness or document. This ability is so important in litigation, where the facts are critical to
effective depositions, motion practice, and the ultimate outcome. More importantly, it shows how much Mark always cared
about each of his cases--he would always take the time to obtain a thorough grasp of each of them. Mark is also an
extremely talented brief-writer. He crafts arguments logically, succinctly and persuasively. One of the things I liked most
about working with Mark was that he always had creative ideas and solutions about how to approach any given challenge.
You never left his office without a fresh understanding of an issue. I highly recommend Mark Lurie.” - Noel K.
“Mark is an excellent attorney and advisor with superb client relationship skills. He retained me to conduct an
investigation of a very sensitive issue involving his client's senior management. Mark carefully worked to minimize the

investigation, Mark helped his client translate the findings into tangible improvement actions.”- Randall B.
“I worked with Mark for over four years and found him to be not only a skilled litigator, but also one of the smartest
attorneys with whom I have had the pleasure to work. Mark possesses a keen focus that goes beyond the description
"detail oriented." It is my privilege to call Mark a former colleague and friend.” - Peter V.
“I have known Mark as an adversary for years. He has always been a consummate professional and very knowledgeable in
his field. Mark is an outstanding attorney.” - Gerald R.
“Mark is skillful litigator. I had the opportunity to read deposition transcripts where Mark questioned both fact and expert
witnesses. I can honestly say they are some of the best examples of how to logically and strategically interrogate a witness.
I have saved some of those transcripts to prepare for my own depositions as well as to provide guidance to junior attorneys.
In addition, he is an excellent legal writer; his writings are always concise and effectively communicate (and advocate for)
the legal principles at issue. I highly recommend Mark.” - Chris F.

novel problems.” - Dixon W.

compliance, but is also able to effectively manage challenging situations. I worked with Mark in the capacity of an outside
vendor tasked with developing an aggregate spend system for Eisai, for Mark's department. Mark was the final arbiter of
the many difficult business decisions that went into the custom aggregate spend solution. Equally as important to the
project as Mark's compliance acumen, was his willingness to be the arbiter of reason between the many involved parties. It
is to Mark's and his team's credit that the aggregate spend project succeeded.” - Dean R

He has also always taken the time to explain and teach the reasoning behind various rulings.” -Sharon D.
“I had the pleasure to work with Mark during my two years at Eisai. During that time, Mark manifested the highest
ethical standards, and consistently embodied values such as integrity and professionalism. He proved to be an outstanding
leader in the organization, and ran an effective Compliance function. I always found him to be direct, principled, and fair,
and to take an evidenced-based, business-centric approach to the difficult situations his function naturally manages on
