What do you focus on?

My practice is focused on complex commercial disputes in state and federal courts representing clients in various industries in all phases of litigation, mediation, and arbitration.

What do you see on the horizon?

Rapid and exponential growth in technology continually redefines ideas of privacy and access to information. Employers and individuals alike are utilizing innovative mechanisms for achieving unprecedented levels of interconnectivity. The evolution of these tools often outpaces the framework intended to govern such interactions, resulting in uneven regulation and uncertainty. It will be crucial to maintain both an attentiveness to developments in the law and to seek creative solutions to navigate this ever-changing landscape.
