What do you focus on?

In my role as CEO and managing partner, I help lead the management of firm assets, business and strategic initiatives. Our leadership team prides itself on being progressive and innovative—for both our clients and for ourselves—in a way that anticipates and captures opportunities; forecasts, prepares for and manages risks; overcomes obstacles; and maximizes results.

We’re not content standing still. We continually look at trends to proactively provide insights and make connections that help our clients succeed.

As a business and real estate attorney, business owners, asset managers, lenders, owners, developers, special servicers and professional service firms turn to me for help building a strategy to restructure, stabilize or maximize and capture the value of their assets. I’ve had great success developing client strategies for acquiring, managing and selling assets from $5M to billions of dollars. My ability to think creatively about complex situations has contributed to the success of numerous businesses including professional services firms and every kind of real estate asset class from retail centers to hotels and offices to multifamily developments, including seniors living and low-income housing on both a local and national scale.

What do you see on the horizon?

We’re living in a world of constant and rapid change. Today, our attorneys are moving beyond looking at precedent to predict what’s next. Increasingly we are innovators, leading the way by anticipating and capitalizing on future opportunities that contribute to our clients’ success.
