More about Marc

Marc has spent over thirty years litigating in the areas of personal injury, products liability, worker's compensation, medical malpractice, oil and gas law, and most recently Jones Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act, and other maritime injury lawsuits. He has developed extensive experience as lead trial attorney in dozens of jury and bench trials featuring complex scientific or medical issues, including spinal injuries, orthopedic injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder, burns, and ophthalmic injuries, in state and federal courts in Texas and Louisiana.

Marc's recent work includes:

  • Obtaining summary dismissal of claim for contribution and indemnity against corporate client in catastrophic personal injury lawsuit, as well as protection from disclosure of company’s root cause analysis report of the incident.
  • Successful prosecution of claim for defense and indemnification on behalf of client sued for causing burn injury.

Marc is admitted to practice in all Texas courts, the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, where he has argued two appeals, and the U.S. District Courts for the Southern, Western and Eastern Districts of Texas. He has been admitted to practice on numerous occasions in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern and Western Districts of Louisiana. He is licensed in Texas and New York.

We are working with clients across our international network to help them minimise the impact of COVID-19 on their business and to prepare for what's next. To find out more, visit our dedicated Covid-19 hub.


The Houston office, which opened on 3 January 2017, established the firm's first office in the USA when HFW merged with leading Texas-based energy and marine firm Legge, Farrow, Kimmitt, McGrath & Brown LLP, a firm with whom we have been successfully collaborating for several years.

This is a significant strategic development for the firm, underlining the fact that Houston is an important geographical market for HFW and its clients, being a key touchpoint for several of the firm’s chosen sectors, including energy, marine and insurance in particular.
