Mark R. Grossmann is global head of Katten's Corporate practice and a member of the firm’s Board of Directors. He concentrates on mergers and acquisitions, corporate financings and restructuring transactions, representing and counseling private equity funds, as well as institutional and entrepreneurial corporate clients in the finance, technology, manufacturing, consulting, real estate, retail, parking, pharmaceutical, security and health care industries. Mark not only spends time in all of Katten's US offices, but as a global leader in the firm, he regularly visits and works with the corporate teams in the United Kingdom and in China.

Mark represents acquirers and targets in mergers and acquisitions, as well as issuers and investors in equity and debt financings and recapitalizations. Notably, he represented Standard Parking (now SP Plus) in its acquisition of Central Parking in 2012. The transaction conjoined the largest and the second-largest parking management companies in the country, more than doubling Standard Parking's holdings. Mark also regularly represents private equity funds, including Victory Park Capital, for whom he has been the lead counsel on the majority of its transactions, including many transactions in the specialty finance industry.

Mark's clients say he has a "superior knowledge of the legal issues, a keen understanding of the important business points and a direct, firm, yet cooperative approach with the counter-parties." They admire his "absolute dedication to getting the deal done correctly."
