Kevin is a trial attorney representing clients across multiple industries dealing with commercial, real estate and products liability litigation. Additionally, he defends criminal matters and represents clients under investigation by U.S. Attorneys General. He also works with a broad range of U.S. and non-U.S. clients to help them navigate complex export control matters concerning the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) and the U.S. Department of State’s International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
Kevin is currently a colonel in the Marine Corps Reserves, most recently serving as the Assessments Officer with II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He has been in the Marine Corps since 1991, first as an enlisted Marine with 8th Tank Battalion and then as an officer, both active and reserve, including as the commanding officer of a reserve infantry unit activated in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
I focus on a wide variety of commercial disputes including contracts, real estate, intellectual property, insurance and business torts. I have experience in all phases of litigation, from trial to verdict, as well as alternate dispute resolution. I leverage my extensive motion and trial experience in state and federal courts, both at Nixon Peabody and as a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Marine Corps.
I focus on and have significant experience defending product liability litigation for pharmaceutical companies, consumer goods manufacturers and premises defendants in exposure cases alleging negligence, product and design defects and failure to warn. I have represented these clients in jurisdictions throughout the United States.
I advise clients on their internal compliance processes through the use of compliance manuals and classification charts and checklists. I work with clients to develop ITAR compliance strategies and advise them on the necessary processes required of businesses, including registration, licensing and disclosures. My regulatory experience involves analyzing and interpreting the ITAR, the EAR and the U.S. sanctions laws administered by OFAC and helping clients understand new developments.
Knowledge of rapidly developing technology combined with effective case strategy offers the most effective and efficient solution to assist clients in navigating a case through its life cycle and achieving a successful outcome.
