About Marc

Learn Marc’s areas of practice.

Marc Lewis is an experienced civil trial lawyer.  Unlike most litigators, Marc tries cases.  Marc has first chaired numerous civil jury trials to verdict – the most recent of which spanned eight weeks, involved more than forty witnesses, and resulted in a favorable settlement post-verdict.

Several members of the Fortune 100 hire Marc to resolve a wide variety of complex, high-stakes business disputes.  Among other things, Marc has a nationwide practice prosecuting, defending, and advising employers and high-level executives in complex employee mobility litigation.  He has appeared in courts throughout the U.S. in cases concerning non-compete agreements and allegations of trade secret theft.  Illustrative of his experience, Marc has been hired multiple times by law firms seeking Marc to represent and defend them in contentious, bet-the-firm disputes.

Most of Marc’s clients turn to him time and time again.  For example, one Fortune 100 technology client has hired Marc to resolve over two hundred separate matters, and Marc has secured significant victories for this client across the board.  A separate Fortune 100 client has hired Marc to help onboard over one hundred new critical hires in the biopharmaceutical industry.

In addition to his complex commercial litigation practice, Marc is a passionate advocate for victims of sexual abuse.  He represents victims throughout the country and has amassed a number of multimillion dollar settlements and verdicts in doing so.

The Daily Journal, California’s leading legal publication, recently included Marc on its “top 40 under 40” list, naming Marc as one of the top 40 lawyers under the age of 40 in the entire state of California.  Marc is perennially included on the annual list of Super Lawyers, a distinction awarded to less than five percent of California’s lawyers.

Marc attended the University of California, Los Angeles where he graduated summa cum laude and phi beta kappa.  Marc then moved to Washington, D.C., where he served as a speechwriter in the Clinton Administration.  Marc later returned to Los Angeles and attended UCLA School of Law, where he was the Senior Editor of the UCLA Law Review.

After law school, Marc worked in the San Francisco office of Latham & Watkins, an international litigation powerhouse.  Marc also clerked for the Honorable Vaughn R. Walker, the former Chief Judge of the Northern District of California.

Upon leaving Latham & Watkins, Marc served as a Deputy City Attorney on the Trial Team for the City and County of San Francisco.  As a trial deputy, Marc defended the City and County of San Francisco in state and federal court, specializing in civil rights, constitutional, personal injury, and complex civil cases.

Away from the office, Marc can be found spending time with his family, usually outdoors.  He races mountain bikes and is an accomplished backcountry ski mountaineer.
