What do you focus on?

My practice focuses on helping clients navigate ongoing or potential disputes and litigation. I am involved in all aspects of the litigation process, and I provide efficient and proactive client service by finding creative and cost effective ways to manage disputes, and I also advise clients on how to avoid potential disputes all together.

I have litigated cases in both federal and state courts involving a broad spectrum of complex business disputes, including breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, business torts, construction litigation, real property disputes, corporate governance disputes, class actions, and enforcement of non-compete agreements, to name a few. I am experienced in responding to temporary restraining orders (TROs), orders to show cause, government or regulatory subpoenas, and most other litigation devices. While I focus primarily in Corporate Governance, Title IX, and Labor and Employment disputes, I have a broad experience and skillset that allows me to provide effective representation for most types of matters.

What do you see on the horizon?

As the cost of litigation continues to grow, it becomes increasingly important for attorneys and clients to take a proactive approach to identify issues before a full-blown litigation develops. By being proactive, I advise clients on how to reduce risks on the front-end. Additionally, my experience in alternative dispute resolution and mediation allows for cost-effective ways to manage litigation costs.
