Mark Bassily is an associate in the firm’s Insurance Defense and Business & Commercial Litigation groups.

Mark received his undergraduate degree from James Madison College of Public Affairs at Michigan State University, where he earned academic honors and awards while pursuing a specialization in Political Economy. He then attended New England School of Law, where he served in successive editor roles for the New England Journal of International & Comparative Law before graduating in 2012.

Interested in litigation from the judge’s perspective, Mark accepted a clerkship with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, working first with Judge Walter Shapero until he retired, then with Judge Maria Oxholm when she rose to the bench. As a clerk, Mark was able to hone his research and writing skills, understand the mechanics of a compelling argument, and see firsthand how cases are properly prepared and won. He also contributed to several important rulings involving complex commercial disputes with numerous stakeholders.

Mark now uses the experience he obtained in chambers and the courtroom as a litigation associate at Zausmer, August & Caldwell.
