Summary

My practice focuses on small business law, venture finance, intellectual property, and commercial litigation. I represents both investors and start-ups/small businesses.

Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, I understands the drive to create a prosperous and self-sustaining company and does not believe that drive should be stifled by looming legal bills or complex legal code.

Knowledgeable attorneys can assist owners with the varied legal aspects associated with running a company, allowing owners to focus on the business of their companies. But most big law firms, while filled with many capable and experienced attorneys, cater primarily to well established institutions. The traditional law firm model not only places such attorneys outside the price range of most small businesses and start-ups, but also lacks the versatility to service the unique situations in which many smaller companies find themselves.?

That's where Springer Law comes in. Using Springer Law, small businesses and start-ups get the law firm credentials, while also receiving a tailor-made service with a pricing structure that doesn't break the bank or prevent the business from getting off the ground.

Prior to opening my own practice, I clerked in the Southern District of New York for the Honorable William H. Pauley III. I also worked as a litigation associate at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, where I handled all aspects of regulatory and complex commercial litigation matters.

While in law school, I was a winner of the Ames Moot Court Competition, was awarded best brief in the Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot, and served as a Technical Editor for the Harvard International Law Journal.

I engage in substantial non-profit work and serve as the Secretary and a Director on the board for Project Explorer. I also work as an attorney for the deceptive advertising watchdog, TruthinAdvertising.org.
