Profile
A seasoned and creative problem-solver, Mark Peters represents employers throughout the country in litigation and day-to-day advice and counseling. He combines a focus on results with a client-centric approach to serving employers in a broad range of industries from healthcare to telecommunications to manufacturing to professional sports. Through his extensive work with healthcare providers in acute care, behavioral health, long term care, home health and dialysis, healthcare employers rely upon Mark’s experience to solve their employment issues and disputes with staff and physicians creatively, efficiently and effectively.

Mark works with employers to help manage their workforces and resolve disputes through the most appropriate and cost-efficient means—either through negotiation, litigation, or alternative dispute resolution. He has significant jury trial and arbitration success in employment discrimination, retaliatory discharge and harassment cases. He also advocates for employers in matters involving wage and hour collective and class actions, the FMLA, Section 806 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, trade secrets and restrictive covenants, ERISA claims, unfair labor practices and union negotiations. Additionally, Mark is experienced in successfully developing and implementing mandatory alternative dispute resolution programs.

Mark has authored numerous articles in national publications and regularly speaks on employment issues throughout the country. Mark is active in the American Health Lawyers Association, currently serving as a Vice Chair of the Labor and Employment practice group and a member of the Behavioral Health Task Force.
