I represent clients in litigation and pre-litigation disputes to help them achieve efficient resolutions and get back to business. Recognizing that litigation should usually be a last resort, I also counsel clients on their business practices and risk management structures to avoid such disputes and minimize risk. By understanding both their business and legal needs, I help clients develop creative strategies to achieve their goals, instead of being discouraged by all the reasons that make an objective seem too difficult or risky.
