Marc D. Grossman graduated from The University of Michigan in 1989. After completing Brooklyn Law School and Baruch Business School’s J.D./M.B.A. program while interning at the Law Department of the United Nations, Mr. Grossman became an Associate and later a Partner in the law firm of Mergel, Tubman & Grossman in New York City. Mr. Grossman is also a Founding Partner of Sanders and Grossman P.C. and Baker, Sanders, Barshay, Grossman, Fass, Muhlstock & Neuwirth, LLC, and a Senior Partner at Sanders, Sanders, Block, Woycik, Viener & Grossman, P.C. and Sanders, Viener, Grossman LLP.
Since beginning his law career in 1993, Mr. Grossman has focused primarily on representing large groups of plaintiffs against common defendants. After six years of practicing plaintiff’s personal injury in State and Federal Courts in New York and New Jersey, Mr. Grossman founded the law firm of Sanders and Grossman, P.C. in 1999, specifically to pursue claims for medical providers. This firm and its successors grew dramatically under his leadership, and now represents thousands of medical providers litigating claims against insurance companies and thousands of injury victims, employing over forty attorneys and one hundred and fifty support staff.
Mr. Grossman had a vision of uniting the medical profession by affording them the opportunity to litigate nominal claims that were being written off by medical providers as un-collectible and had not previously been practical for most attorneys to litigate. By coordinating Discovery, utilizing the most up-to-date case management technology, and recruiting top office administrators and trial attorneys, Mr. Grossman’s firm was able to greatly improve efficiencies throughout the litigation process and, ultimately, the viability of collecting these claims. By filing over 100,000 individual lawsuits, Mr. Grossman’s firms garnered the attention of the insurance industry and the medical profession in New York, eventually leading to a series of mass settlements on behalf of his clients and recoveries in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
In just 2006 and 2007, Mr. Grossman’s firm personally litigated, negotiated, and recovered over $100 million for his medical provider clients. The unique experience Mr. Grossman garnered as an innovator and leader in the mass settlement of medical claims and mass torts made him a leader in his field in negotiating and obtaining large recoveries. Most recently, he has represented hundreds of injured clients in lead paint litigations, asbestos litigations, and mold litigations, as well as thousands of victims of defective drugs and products.
Mr. Grossman received recognition litigating Vioxx cases in New Jersey Superior Court where he served as a liaison to the media as a member of the Vioxx PSC’s Public Relations Committee and as a liaison for the Committee to many financial institutions and governmental agencies, offering a common voice for the hundreds of attorneys handling such cases and the tens of thousands of victims they represent. These efforts and the hard work of many other relentless attorneys ultimately led Merck to agree to one of the largest Civil Settlements in American History for $4.85 Billion.
In December 2010, Mr. Grossman was nominated and invited to join both The Board of Directors of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association and the Executive Committee of ATLA. Mr. Grossman is also a member of the Mass Tort Trial Lawyers Association and the Leaders Forum of the American Association of Justice.
Mr. Grossman has become well known as a speaker and host of approximately twenty educational seminars designed to educate victims, the medical community, and other attorneys.

After an $8 million verdict in Boles v. Merck for a victim of Fosamax, along with co-counsel Paul J. Sizemore, Mr. Grossman led the Trial Team in Rosenberg v. Merck which was the first bellwether New Jersey Trial in Atlantic County Superior Court, where he expects to be trying many more Fosamax cases over the next few years.
