Through excellent and comprehensive strategy, advocacy, and grit, I anticipate and address my clients' legal, compliance, and business issues before they become complicated and costly disputes and increase risk. I am particularly adept at handling complex litigation, investigations, and special projects relating to commercial and consumer regulations, contracts, and practices by (1) providing legal advice and commercial judgment tailored to my clients' corporate and business strategies and (2) monitoring project costs and expenses to ensure that budgets, goals and established performance metrics are met. I am a staunch business and legal advocate, but more importantly, a corporate fixer, trusted advisor, and business partner, and I strive to help clients respond to critical situations in a way that maximizes business success.
I also enjoy using the skills and tools I've developed to assist my community through work with inner-city arts and education institutes, public radio stations, and local business and leadership groups. All of these activities allow me to do the thing I most enjoy: discussing (and, hopefully, resolving) important issues with smart people.
In sum, I actively learn about my friends and clients and work with my networks to try to make their lives, institutions, and communities better.
