What do you focus on?

Labor & Employment

I handle all phases of employment litigation with the labor and employment team, from discovery to dispositive motion practice and trial. I have litigated wrongful termination, discrimination and retaliation cases as well as wage and hour actions. With our experienced labor team, I have also provided strategic advice regarding labor disputes, collective bargaining and other matters under the jurisdiction of the National Labor Relations Board. Recently, I second-chaired a hearing before the Board.

Commercial Litigation

I have also handled commercial disputes involving contracts, breach of fiduciary duty, copyrights and trademarks. Additionally, I have worked on high-stakes litigation involving art displaced during times of conflict.

E-Sports Initiative

I, along with many other Nixon Peabody attorneys, have launched an e-Sports task group focused on this emerging gaming industry. We will be addressing the legal issues at play in this space, ones that stakeholders should keenly consider and understand. Stay tuned for many upcoming articles and events relating to legal issues in the e-Sports industry.

What do you see on the horizon?

New technology and social media will continue to raise questions of first impression in many areas of the law, from labor and employment to data privacy (e.g., does a former employee’s boasting of his new job on LinkedIn violate restrictive covenants).
