Our Firm

Markun Zusman Freniere and Compton, LLP was founded in 2003 by David Markun, Edward Zusman and Jeffrey Compton.  After practicing at larger firms, David, Ed and Jeff started this firm with one simple goal – to provide clients with top-tier legal representation at competitive rates that are determined by the client’s needs.  We pride ourselves on getting the right result for the client as efficiently as possible.  As a testament to our client-centric approach, our small firm which started with just six attorneys has grown to over fifteen attorneys in four offices across the country.  Our ranks now include the former General Counsel and Associate General Counsel of the largest independent broker-dealer in the country, a former federal prosecutor, and talented young associates who bring with them unique skills and backgrounds.

Our size allows us to remain nimble, while the breadth of our experience allows us to assist our clients with their diverse and complex legal needs.  Our efficient firm model enables our attorneys to maintain perspective on what is important for each client in each matter.  We provide sensible advice, which is why many of our largest clients consistently hire us to navigate their thorniest problems, often foregoing much larger firms to handle their most sensitive matters.  Our clients range from multinational public companies to smaller regional professional services firms to individuals who need assistance in smaller matters.  We draw on the diversity of our attorneys and experience to navigate our clients, large and small, towards the results they are looking for.
