He has litigated significant cases involving intellectual property, securities and financial disputes, insurance coverage matters, contract enforcement, and class actions and personal injury claims.

Marcus received his bachelor’s degree, cum laude, from Hamilton College and his law degree, with honors, from Duke University School of Law. He has been consistently recognised for his litigation skills in Chambers and Partners, Best Lawyers in America®, Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite, and Super Lawyers in the areas of business litigation, general commercial litigation, and class action defense, among other areas.
