Business lawyer and litigator with diverse experience representing closely held companies, private equity firms, and other business enterprises. My experience as general counsel and on corporate boards gives me a big picture overview to business transactions, business decision processes, and complex litigation management. I also bring that same sensibility to bear on trial and appellate strategy. An acknowledged litigation expert and speaker, I am frequently consulted by other lawyers for trial strategy, business strategy, and ethics issues.
I handle matters in the following areas: business litigation and unfair competition cases, shareholder litigation and partnership disputes, employment law matters (including wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment and wage and hour issues), commercial real estate matters and project acquisition, and health care law. I provide specialized services in intellectual property litigation and trade secret protection and litigation.
