Marc Blackman

Marc Blackman is a partner at Ransom Blackman LLP. Marc headed west the day after his last exam at Yale Law School. Following a clerkship with Chief Justice Kenneth O’Connell of the Oregon Supreme Court, Marc worked as an Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Oregon primarily prosecuting white collar and criminal tax cases. He and Jack Ransom left that office in 1977 to form Ransom Blackman LLP. Over the years, Marc’s practice has evolved from straight-forward criminal defense to representing people with a lot to lose, whether from an investigation or prosecution of alleged criminal activity or an inquiry that could end their careers by such entities as the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Oregon State Bar, and the Oregon Medical Board.

Marc was recognized in the original edition of The Best Lawyers in America® in 1983 and has continued to be listed ever since. He has likewise been included on the list of “Oregon Super Lawyers” in Oregon Super Lawyers-Rising Stars magazine since 2006.

In addition to his work as a litigator, Marc is an active leader of the legal community, serving as the President of the Multnomah Bar Association, Chair of the Oregon State Bar Bar-Press Broadcasters Council, President of the Gus J. Solomon American Inn of Court, and on numerous committees of the United States District Court for the District of Oregon and the Oregon State Bar.
