Mark Whitmore is a shareholder with Bassford Remele, a position he has held since 1999. Mark joined the firm as an associate in 1992. His practice focuses on civil litigation; Mark has successfully tried cases in federal and state courts throughout the upper midwest involving a wide range of areas including medical malpractice, personal injury and wrongful death, and commercial and employment disputes.

Although he handles a wide range of matters, much of his practice focuses on defending medical malpractice claims and providing guidance to area hospitals on risk management, claim prevention and governmental investigations.  This practice extends to the representation of doctors, nurses and other professionals in matters pending before the Minnesota licensing boards.  This also includes the handling of matters involving the release and management of Protected Health Information and compliance with the Minnesota Commitment Act.

Mark has represented several plaintiffs in negotiating multi-million dollar settlements in connection with injuries they sustained in motor vehicle accidents caused by drivers operating their vehicles under the influence of alcohol. Mark lives in Plymouth, Minnesota, with his wife and three children. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing, coaching basketball, and spending time with his family. Mark served as the firm's Chief Operating Officer and Managing Partner from 2008 to 2015.
