David Markun has been the firm’s managing partner from formation through 2017 and a co-founder of the firm. Prior to starting the firm, David was the head of the securities practice group of a Los Angeles based firm, and, prior to that, he was the managing partner of the Los Angeles office of a national firm. In the last 14 years, David has helped grow Markun Zusman Freniere and Compton with an expanding national practice. With the assistance of his partners, the firm has opened offices in Portland, and more recently, Boston, where the firm can better serve several of its East Coast clients. David has significant experience in complex litigation and professional liability matters. His practice focuses on securities arbitration and litigation, regulatory matters in the financial services industry, and employment, consumer fraud and investment-related class actions. He has defended broker-dealers and financial professionals in hundreds of arbitrations, and has defended broker-dealers in class actions in state and federal courts. He also has been retained as co-counsel in wage and hour class actions and consumer class actions. David is often retained on matters of sensitive importance to the firm’s clients, including employment and trade secrets issues, even before such matters result in litigation.
