Mark D. Grossman
lawyer • author • professional leadership • negotiator • sales keynote speaker
What makes Mark D. Grossman different than most professional speakers who speak on negotiations is that Mark had done it for real as a practicing deal-making lawyer and businessperson.
Mark is a sought-after keynote speaker, technology lawyer, negotiator and author of “Technology Law, What Every Business (and Business-Minded Person) Needs to Know.” Since 1995, Mark has spoken at over 400 events around the world.
Mark’s keynotes showcase his sophisticated business savvy as a deal maker and negotiator and highlight his quick-witted style of presenting complex concepts in a way that entertain and inform audiences worldwide. Mark brings the same clarity and humor to speaking that he brought to his weekly column in the “Miami Herald.”
Mark has negotiated deals into the hundreds of millions of dollars, including a $200+ million deal with IBM, and deals with some of the best-known brands in the world including General Electric, General Motors, Verizon, IBM, American Express, AT&T, Computer Associates, Computer Sciences, Levi Strauss & Co., Amazon Web Services, HP, Oracle, Fox News, ESPN and many other large privately held businesses and Fortune 500 companies – the list goes on into the hundreds.
Since 2003, Mark D. Grossman has appeared in Best Lawyers in America. In 2016 and again in 2018, Best Lawyers named him “Lawyer of the Year” for Technology Law in New York City. Each year, Best Lawyers names a single lawyer in each specialty, in each community, as the “Lawyer of the Year.” Mark’s selection a second time for 2018 is unprecedented.
Those honored receive outstanding ratings in the confidential peer-review survey in which over 25,000 leading attorneys cast about two million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties. Inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor because lawyers do not pay a listing fee. “Corporate Counsel” magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
Based on yet another survey of his peers, New York Super Lawyers has had Mark on their list every year since 2015. Super Lawyers are those who were in the top 5% of the vote in a state.
Mark is a frequent guest on television and radio, offering his point of view on topical legal issues in today’s news cycle. His appearances have included CNBC, Bloomberg TV, ABC’s “Nightline,” Wall Street Journal Radio and NPR.
Mark has written hundreds of columns for PC World Magazine, the Miami Herald, and numerous other publications.
He is a member of the National Speakers Association, a collective of speaking professionals that includes experts in a variety of industries and disciplines.
Mark is a cum laude graduate of Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C.
