Chatow Law is built on a foundation of Mark’s 20 years of business experience as a founder, executive, and CEO of companies across a range of industries including real estate development, technology, wellness, and consumer products.
Mark began his studies at USC Law in 1990, and earned his J.D. in 1993.
1993 – Consumer Products
Between his first and second years of law school, Mark became a founding partner of Roundhouse Products. After graduating from USC, Mark began to work full-time at Roundhouse as VP Sales & Marketing, and helped grow the company from its initial three partners to more than 200 employees, $60,000,000 in revenue, and #25 on the Inc. 500.
2002 – Wellness
In 2002, after the successful sale of Roundhouse to Targus, Mark acquired a business in the consumer wellness industry.
2006 – Real Estate Development
Mark joined Gemstone Development in 2006 where he gained experience in both commercial and residential construction and development. He helped take Gemstone to $100,000,000 in annual revenue and #5 on the Inc. 500 list.
2009 – Technology
In 2009, Mark became the first executive hire at CloudCrowd (later Servio), a San Francisco crowdsourcing company funded by Draper, Fisher, Jurvetson with more than 200,000 cloud-based workers around the world.
Mark later moved to Sourcebits where he was head of global marketing.
After his time at Servio and Sourcebits, Mark realized that there was a gap in the market for a business litigation practice run by someone with significant business experience.
