Mark Chenoweth

General Counsel, Washington Legal Foundation

Before joining the Washington Legal Foundation, Mark was Chief of Staff for Rep. Mike Pompeo, a Member of the Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

Mark graduated from Yale University, where he was Editor-in-Chief of the Yale Free Press, and from the University of Chicago Law School, where he founded the IJ Clinic on Entrepreneurship. After a clerkship with Judge Danny Boggs of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, Mark began his legal career in DC as an associate at the Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering law firm.

Next, Mark served as an Attorney Advisor at the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Legal Policy (OLP), helping to vet and get confirmed dozens of President Bush’s judicial nominees. 

Mark left Washington to join a Fortune 20-sized company as in-house counsel, managing successful legal reform projects around the country. During that time he was on the board of the American Tort Reform Association and active in other groups including the Civil Justice Reform Group, Lawyers for Civil Justice, and the Civil Justice Task Force of the American Legislative Exchange Council. 

After several years in house, Mark returned to DC and served as legal counsel to Commissioner Anne Northup at the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). In that role he gained an up close and personal understanding of the inner workings of a federal regulatory agency.
