Mark Fabiani

April 10, 2013


With broad experience working for political administrations at both the local and federal levels, Mark Fabiani is an expert at mitigating crises and managing reform. After over a decade working in the public sector, he and his business partner established Fabiani and Lehane, LLC, in 1997. Mark Fabiani composes comprehensive legal and communications strategies for companies as well as public figures who must contend with financial, legal, and public relations challenges.

In December of 2012, Fabiani, with Christopher Lehane and Bill Guttentag, released the book Masters of Disaster: The Ten Commandments of Damage Control. The book guides readers through a series of historical case studies of well-known crises, and the strategies and tactics that lead to ultimate failure or phenomenal redemption.

Fabiani graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School before clerking for Judge Stephen Reinhardt of the United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit. Following this, he held senior-level positions with Mayor of Los Angeles Tom Bradley, and later, with the Clinton Administration. In 2000, he worked with Al Gore’s presidential bid as the Deputy Campaign Manager for Communications and Strategy.

With Fabiani and Lehane, Mark Fabiani has continued to work within the political realm on campaigns and on ballot initiatives in favor of consumer protection and in support of the rights of indigenous peoples. As part of this work, Fabiani has offered his services pro bono to prepare advertising and advocacy campaigns for a number of non-profit and charitable organizations.
