I approach all of my clients’ matters with the goal of gaining the best resolution possible as efficiently as possible, and I believe my winning track record supports that strategy. Litigation can often wreak havoc on companies on many levels, so I always strive to move cases forward as quickly as possible to reach the outcome that best fits clients’ objectives. That way we avoid hampering the clients’ operations for extended periods of time, and they can get back to doing what they do best – running their businesses.
Bringing two decades of experience to his practice, business litigator Mark Zancolli advocates for clients in trials, appeals, domestic and international arbitrations, and mediations. He has successfully represented individuals and entities from a wide range of industries, including real estate owners and developers, condemnors, financial institutions and executives, broker-dealers, healthcare companies, insureds, cedents, entrepreneurs, nonprofits, and artists.
Mark advises clients dealing with matters in various venues and in a broad spectrum of substantive areas of law, including real estate, employment, restrictive covenants, trade secrets, securities, insurance, contracts, cross-border, intellectual property rights, and financial services regulation and enforcement. He tries cases in federal and state courts in New York and New Jersey, as well as arbitrations before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the American Arbitration Association (AAA), the AIDA Reinsurance and Insurance Arbitration Society (ARIAS-U.S.), and the London Court of International Arbitration.
With a particular penchant for real estate litigation, Mark helps property owners and landlords with a variety of issues including tenant disputes, rent defaults, compliance with various lease covenants, and building code matters. Because the COVID-19 pandemic has spawned many real estate problems such as commercial lease defaults, Mark foresees that property-related legal fallout from the virus will continue for months and possibly years to come. Mark also assists condemning authorities with eminent domain proceedings for public projects.
In addition, Mark advises clients in the increasingly critical legal area of cybersecurity and privacy law, helping them with tasks such as drafting privacy notices for their websites. He also keeps them compliant with ever-evolving privacy laws and regulations, which will continue to increase in significance as developments stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic produce more concerns and conflicts over privacy and confidentiality. He is a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), through which he has received Certified Information Privacy Professional/United States (CIPP/US) and Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E) certifications.
Always placing an emphasis on sharp, clear communication, Mark draws on his stellar writing abilities to reinforce and boost his advocacy. This skill set serves as a pivotal key to his litigation practice, where decisions of motions and other applications made to the court are often based solely on written submissions. Whatever the subject matter he’s handling, Mark always takes a friendly, courteous, professional, and responsive approach and works hard to resolve issues quickly, adeptly, and advantageously for his clients.
