Mr. Marsack has served as a valued consultant and lawyer to clients, both nationally and regionally, during his distinguished career as a labor and employment lawyer. In this capacity, he has provided legal advice and critical strategies and tactics in general labor matters; contract administration, arbitration and grievance handling; collective bargaining; plant closures, work transfers and relocations; subcontracting; strike planning and picket line control, federal and state court injunction proceedings; and successorship law and the labor law and labor relations aspects of mergers and acquisitions. Mr. Marsack handled two of the longest strikes in the history of the State of Iowa and was recognized for his work in the publication Industry Week in the article, "Divorce Union Style."

Law firms, accounting firms, private equity and venture capital groups have sought out Mr. Marsack's counsel to assist their clients in securing their business objectives in matters concerning the implementation of entrepreneurial decisions. These groups have deferred to his expertise and experience in dealing with the host of complex labor and employment law issues which evolve from such decisions.
