My passion is working on big, thorny problems that companies and their boards face. These problems sit at the intersection of business and law, and tackling them is what excites me the most. I take an interdisciplinary approach to see all of the nuances and connections between legal and business issues. I bring this lens when working with you to develop insightful, practical, and workable solutions to the problems that keep you up at night.

I am of greatest service when I advise clients on the questions that worry them the most. The problems that other advisors tend to shy away from are precisely those that I embrace. I relish these challenges and build client relationships on three pillars. First, technical excellence in both business law and business strategy. Second, the ability to communicate complex ideas in clear, understandable terms to a variety of audiences. And third, the desire to provide extraordinarily responsive client service, a bespoke offering to meet unique client needs.
