Marc Jacobs is a partner in M&R’s Los Angeles office. He handles sophisticated and complex litigation matters.
With a practice primarily focused on the financial services, insurance and real estate industries, Marc has litigated numerous cases (class actions included) involving trade secret misappropriation and conversion, wage and hour, wrongful termination and discrimination claims. He has done so for nearly two decades, working on behalf of a range of clients, such as major insurance companies, agents and brokers, as well as real estate developers, a variety of employers, owners of commercial and industrial properties and individuals in matters involving title, use and ownership rights, easements, adverse possession, commercial trespass, preservation of title and other property-related claims.
A member of the firm’s Advertising & Digital Media Industry Group, Marc also advises marketing and advertising companies, and other businesses, regarding emerging technologies and associated litigation risk. Likewise, he has successfully defended several complex class action lawsuits brought under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and California Invasion of Privacy Act (CIPA), and he routinely counsels businesses on TCPA rights and obligations, as well as a broad range of other compliance issues and best practices relevant to the advertising and digital media space.
Marc is heavily involved with USA and British Gymnastics as well, and has represented some of the largest gymnastics clubs in these countries, many of which turn out Olympic athletes. Additionally, he advises health and athletic clubs and organizations in a number of areas, including risk management, contracts, privacy and social media rights, waiver documentation, employment practices, benefits analysis and risk management compliance issues.
A talented illustrator, Marc’s legal cartoons have been seen online, in a variety of newsletters and in bar association publications in more than 30 states.
