Shaun Markley

Shaun Markley is a partner at Nicholas & Tomasevic, LLP. He focuses on business, employment, consumer, insurance, and intellectual property litigation as well as appeals. Many of these matters are complex class, collective, or representative actions pending in state and federal courts throughout California and other states. His notable achievements at Nicholas & Tomasevic include briefing and arguing key dispositive motions in front of state, federal, and appellate courts.

Shaun has been instrumental in securing several hard-fought, large class action settlements to recover wages and related penalties on behalf of California employees from defendants in the retail ($4.5 million class settlement), technology ($2.4 million class settlement), and automotive ($1.2 million class settlement) sectors. He has also successfully represented individual employees in a variety of other industries including transportation, insurance, healthcare, and security.

Prior to joining the firm, Shaun effectively represented health care clients through all phases of litigation. He also worked with businesses to obtain insurance coverage for litigation matters, in particular those involving intellectual property rights. Shaun is admitted to practice before all of the California state trial and appellate courts, the United States District Court for the Southern and Northern Districts of California, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He is a member of the San Diego County Bar Association.
