What do you focus on?


I represent clients from a diverse range of industries in a variety of litigation matters in both state and federal courts. I assist in all phases of litigation, focusing on drafting pleadings and dispositive motions, propounding and responding to written discovery, and preparing for trial. I am currently actively involved in defending several firm clients in Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) litigation.

Labor & Employment

I counsel clients on the hiring of remote workers to ensure they are compliant with various state and local regulations and requirements. I have litigated non-compete and trade secret cases for clients in diverse industries, including investment banking and commercial real estate. In addition, I have defended employers against allegations of age, race, sex, and disability discrimination claims.

What do you see on the horizon?

I am closely following the application and enforcement of the Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) as it will significantly impact how many employers track their employees’ time. More specifically, it will regulate the use of “punch in“ procedures that use methods such as fingerprint, palm, or facial scans. I am also tracking these developments in other states to see if they follow suit and enact laws that regulate the same categories of information.
