Biography

Mark Pifko, a Shareholder at Baron & Budd, specializes in the prosecution of high-profile class action cases against multi-national corporations. Mr. Pifko is a staunch advocate of consumers’ rights and recently, he was named a “Rising Star” by Law360, a national legal news publication. Law360’s Rising Star award is given annually to top attorneys under age 40. In 2016, Mr. Pifko was one of 5 attorneys in the class action area and one of 179 attorneys nationwide, across all practice areas, to receive this recognition. Since joining the Los Angeles office of Baron & Budd in 2011, Mr. Pifko’s efforts have led to the return of significant sums of money to victims of corporate wrongdoing and affected changes in the automotive, financial services, and food and beverage industries.

Prior to joining Baron & Budd, Mr. Pifko spent nearly a decade representing some of the world’s largest companies in high-stakes litigation. In 2010, Mr. Pifko left his position at Arnold & Porter LLP so that he could devote his entire practice to his passion — representing the interests of plaintiffs. In connection with his corporate defense work, Mr. Pifko worked with advertising agencies who helped sell his clients’ products and services and Mr. Pifko recalls that the tag line for one such agency was, “while life is busy happening, we get people to do stuff!” Corporations spend billions of dollars a year to get people to buy their offerings, but when things go wrong, Mr. Pifko wondered what individuals can do when they need to get recalcitrant companies to “do stuff,” like refund money and stop unlawful practices from continuing.

Mr. Pifko believes class action lawsuits provide an important way for people to protect themselves from powerful corporations. Instead of one person taking on a billion-dollar company, class actions allow groups of people to fight back with a collective voice.

In addition to his litigation work, Pifko has been called upon to be a speaker on class action topics at legal industry conferences, and Mr. Pifko is a talented writer whose articles on class action law and consumer advocacy have been published in California Lawyer magazine and the Daily Journal newspaper.
