I love what I do, I get excited about my clients’ business opportunities, and I never lose sight that my legal expertise must blend seamlessly with the practicalities of the client in the operation of a successful business.

Practical, Effective Business Solutions

I am a quick read on how a deal comes together, with a depth of understanding across the legal disciplines that most impact the life of a business. I advise clients in project development, business transactions of all kinds, contract negotiation and drafting, litigation and alternative dispute resolution of business disputes, and advisory work and counsel in all manner of day-to-day business issues.

More About Me

Three Reasons Clients Come Back To Me

1. It’s critical to the success of any business relationship that all parties understand the exchange of services.
All of my engagements start with a written engagement agreement, confirmed by each client, which spells out the scope of my proposed representation and my compensation arrangement for such work.

2. My emphasis is on thorough communication, both at the initial engagement and throughout what may become a long-term lawyer-client relationship. As a result, I have never had an unresolved dispute with a client over my fees. I very much understand deadlines and that time is money.

3. I’m not afraid to challenge paradigms in order to find innovative solutions to address the unique issues my clients have in their industries. In the drafting and preparation of the documents necessary to memorialize a transaction, I am constantly thinking “outside the box,” which usually results in a quicker turnaround of my work and very satisfied clients.

Qualified Legal Counsel For Your Business Needs

All businesses do business with other businesses, which means that contracts are negotiated and documented that simply and accurately reflect the agreement of the parties. As a transactional lawyer, I represent my business client base in the preparation of every kind and stripe of business agreement, from simple to complex.

Some of my clients require venture capital counsel. Others need direction in mergers, acquisitions, or the redemption or consolidation of former ownership interests. On occasion, the best of business transactions can go south. In such instances, I am there as corporate counsel to bring expert representation in oftentimes complex business disputes, which may be resolved through mediation or require litigation or arbitration for an acceptable result.

I understand how businesses work, and I am a quick study in mapping out the necessary business relationships which lead to the creation of documents that must be prepared to allow my clients to complete successful and mutually beneficial business transactions. Tell me about your proposed deal or transaction, and I will be “mapping it out,” document by document, in “real time.” I bring a creative, dynamic perspective to the construction of legal solutions for small and midsized businesses.
