Mark Hatch-Miller, a graduate of the Yale Law School and a former law clerk to two federal judges, is one of the country’s top young trial and appellate attorneys.

Mark has extensive experience representing clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies, such as Walmart and Nasdaq, to smaller businesses and individuals. He’s been involved in numerous headline-grabbing matters—including Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.6 billion defamation lawsuits against Fox News Network and Newsmax TV. These cases have attracted widespread attention from outlets such as the New York Times, CNBCThe Associated Press and LA Times.

Mark practices in a wide range of subject-matter areas, including contracts, patent infringement, trade secrets misappropriation, securities fraud, qui tam/false claims, defamation, product liability, and antitrust, among other areas. He handles pro bono matters ranging from individual employment discrimination disputes to amicus briefs filed in high-profile Supreme Court cases.

Proven Results

Whether through trial verdicts or arbitration awards, via pre-trial motion wins, or through favorable settlements, Mark regularly secures results for his clients.

Mark won a take-nothing defense verdict for medical device manufacturer Globus Medical Inc., in a patent infringement dispute before a Texas federal court. Mark also obtained several key pre-verdict wins in the case, including on summary judgment motions and motions to limit expert testimony. After the Globus trial win, Mark co-wrote an article for The Corporate Counselor about his experience trying the case

Mark represented whistleblowers and helped the government secure a $40.5 million settlement in a medical false claims lawsuit in New York Federal Court against Apria Healthcare Group; the whistleblowers recovered $4.34 million.

Mark secured a $19 million settlement (approximately $12 million after fees and expenses) for a class of plaintiffs in a New York federal court price-fixing case against Coach USA Inc. and City Sights LLC, providers of “hop-on, hop-off” double-decker bus tours of New York City.
