About

Marc has been an active participant and influencer in the IPv4 trading market since well before its public emergence in March of 2011 with the announcement of the Nortel and Microsoft transaction. Marc started his IPv4 practice while a partner in the information and communications technology boutique law firm of Levine, Blaszak, Block & Boothby, LLP ("LB3").

He has served as principal advisor to many of the largest IPv4 block holders over the past 6 years — providing his clients with strategic and tactical advice that allows them to assess their IPv4 assets, quantify the risks and rewards of IPv4 market participation, and pursue monetizing strategies effectively.

Marc specializes in structuring their IPv4 conveyance arrangements to minimize transactional frictions, mitigate risks, optimize deal size and timing, and enhance value for both parties. Drawing from his senior-level contacts at many leading technology, investment banking, and brokerage firms, Marc has formed collaborative relationships to develop and deliver solutions that address key IPv4 trading and transfer market challenges. Marc also routinely works (constructively) with Internet governance stakeholders to promote progressive IPv4 registration and transfer policies and practices.

The end of 2015 told a different story. In late September, the ARIN free pool was depleted. more»
