Business owners, executives and nonprofits large and small have turned to Mark for sound counsel during times of transition for three decades. A dedicated advocate for Bowie & Jensen clients - and of causes important to the health and well-being of those in the region - Mark brings practical experience and energy to every endeavor.
The core of Mark’s practice is counseling established private companies on decisions and transactions which advance critical corporate objectives. This work centers on mergers, acquisitions, dispositions, financings, and succession planning.
Mark’s client support typically extends beyond the limits of any one transaction: with experience guiding large, established entities – including as a highly involved member of the board of the region’s largest healthcare system – as well as mid-sized businesses, he draws on his diverse experience to help clients move forward.
Accordingly, Mark acts as outside general counsel for a number of private companies, helping them to identify and triage a range of legal and business issues, including intellectual property, real estate and employment matters.
As the grandson of Danish immigrant farmers and the son of a retail store owner, Mark observed firsthand the hard work and determination required to launch and grow smaller ventures. He continues to devote time to helping Maryland entrepreneurs and small business owners and currently serves on the board of directors of a Baltimore biotech start-up.
Mark co-founded Bowie & Jensen and oversees all transactional work for firm clients. He is rated as “preeminent” by a leading survey of his peers, and was recently selected to The Daily Record’s Leaders in the Law list, among other recognitions. He has provided pro bono assistance to numerous non-profit organizations, including Intrepid Foundation, Bates/Vincent Foundation, Roland Park Civic League, and Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation. Mark’s energy extends beyond the realm of client and nonprofit work to the world of foster parenting, Taekwondo, motorcycle racing, and high performance driving.
