Lawyer and strategic business consultant with diverse experience representing closely held companies, private equity firms, small business enterprises, and startups. From my experience as general counsel and through corporate board directorships, I bring a bigger picture overview to business transactions, business decision processes, and complex litigation management. I also bring that sensibility to bear on trial and appellate strategy. I am frequently consulted by other lawyers for trial strategy, business strategy, and ethics issues.
I handle matters in the following areas: business and commercial law, employment and labor law, litigation and dispute resolution, commercial real estate matters and project acquisition, and health care law. I provide specialized services in intellectual property litigation and trade secret protection and litigation.
I also have first-hand experience with the challenges parents face in advocating for special needs children, and I consult with parents on special education and IEP issues.
