Marc A. Menkveld

Member, Indianapolis

Marc is an experienced litigator and is a member of the Business Services, Small Business Services, Environmental Litigation, Trusts & Estates, and Auto Retail practices. Although his practice focuses on litigation, Marc is a registered mediator who views litigation as just one option for resolving disputes. He methodically conceptualizes and shapes the dynamic of a legal dispute to create multiple options for achieving client-preferred outcomes. Marc stays in the vanguard of negotiation practice and theory, most recently obtaining executive education at the highly regarded Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School.

Marc joined SKO in 2017 from the merger with Bamberger, Foreman, Oswald & Hahn. Prior to practicing law, Marc served as an Army Ranger in the U.S. Army Special Operations Command.

Legal Practice

Business Services: Business of all sizes need help staying on course. I establish relationships with clients and support their businesses by reviewing, negotiating and drafting contracts, performing internal audits and assisting in due diligence. Clients trust me for advice on regulatory compliance and planning, particularly in the areas of data security and privacy.


Business and Environmental Litigation: My experience with complex business and environmental issues enables me to take a strategic approach to litigation that is less adversarial. Often, I find opportunities for settlement. When a case goes into litigation, I’m prepared to guide my clients through the process, whether it involves a small business dispute or a conflict with millions of dollars at stake.


Automotive Dealer Services: In this highly regulated industry, I represent auto dealers in a range of legal matters, from administrative enforcement actions and advertising compliance to negotiating data sharing agreements. To help auto dealers keep pace with ever-changing regulations, I manage and annually revise the dealer forms package offered by the Auto Dealer Association of Indiana.

Looking Ahead

Closely held and family-owned businesses will continue to drive innovation and the U.S. economy. To prosper, these organizations must focus on their missions rather than legal disputes. Conflict resolution is a necessary component of business and many legal conflicts can be resolved without litigation. Strategic negotiations should not end where litigation begins. Litigation will continue to reveal new settlement options and opportunities that are apparent to attorneys who are trained to recognize and capitalize on them.
