I am a partner in the Government Contracts practice in Dentons' Washington, DC, office. I advise C-suite and other top executives at Fortune 500 companies in the biotechnology/health care, global management consulting, technology and outsourcing industries on matters pertaining to ethics and compliance, litigation, investigations, M&A and corporate and business transactions. I have a multidisciplinary practice, including extensive experience designing, implementing and enhancing compliance and ethics programs for companies that operate in highly regulated industries, including those who do business with the government in the United States and abroad.
My experience as former senior in-house counsel for two large public companies allows me to bring an informed perspective when advising clients. Business leaders benefit from my keen ability to obtain consensus, as well as to design programs and create controls that allow their businesses operate effectively within the myriad of regulatory restrictions.
My approach is to partner with clients to identify, manage and reduce risk to their companies. These efforts include advising on the design of and enhancements to global ethics and compliance programs, and providing advice on a variety of critical compliance issues, among them procurement fraud, suspension and debarment regimes, conflicts of interest, revolving door, data protection and privacy, cost compliance, mandatory disclosure and other government reporting obligations. I also counsel companies on exports controls compliance and foreign ownership, control or influence (FOCI) mitigation matters. For small businesses and other companies new to the government contracting sector, I help navigate the complex regulatory regime associated with doing business with the government, including handling size status disputes and providing general advice and counseling.
I am in my second year of service on Law360's Government Contracts Editorial Advisory Board. I also serve as a member of the Defense and Transportation Security (DATS) Committee of the British American Business Association (BABA).
In addition to my private practice work, I serve as the pro bono general counsel to FAIR Girls, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to prevent, through education and empowerment, the exploitation of girls worldwide.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with and traveling with my family and especially playing with my two young sons (ages 6 and 8). I am looking forward to meeting my LCLD co-fellows, alumni and leadership!
