Effective, Sophisticated, Practical
As a "Go-to" lawyer, I am the first stop for most of my clients when any meaningful legal or business matter arises, regardless of the type of issue or industry. They know that I ask the right questions, listen carefully to their responses without judging them, and give honest and direct feedback.
My advice is practical—often creative—and always balances my clients' priorities, circumstances, and budgets. Once the issues are pinpointed and the strategy is set, I handle the matter personally. If help from any specialist is needed, I offer my cultivated network of lawyers and other professionals.
I recognized at an early stage in my career that developing and implementing successful strategies for my clients goes well beyond simply understanding the law. It is critical to take into account the business and people involved. For more than 35 years, I have focused on seeing the whole picture and finding the right perspective to get my clients where they want to go.
With a results-oriented approach, I help clients achieve their objectives without throwing up unnecessary roadblocks and by finding practical, realistic, and creative solutions to overcome unavoidable challenges.
CONVERSANT WITH MANY BUSINESS SECTORS; PARTICULARLY IN-DEPTH EXPERIENCE IN HEALTHCARE AND HOSPITALITY
My extensive work with clients in the highly complicated and regulated healthcare industry has prepared me to work in other regulated industries and, of course, with clients in less regulated sectors, including the hospitality industry. I also advise legal, engineering, and other professional service businesses, and I work with fashion, design, real estate, social media, Internet, and telecommunications businesses. I serve the needs of entrepreneurs, executives, managers, and general counsels, across the full spectrum of business types, including public companies, venture capital-backed businesses, privately funded companies, and not-for-profit entities and institutions.
BROAD RANGE OF MATTERS
My experience covers a broad range of matters, including business structuring, formation, and strategic planning, capital raising, private equity, and venture capital transactions, corporate governance, business acquisitions and dispositions, dispute resolution and litigation oversight, responses to government investigations, employment agreements, real property leases and acquisitions, novel, and sophisticated contracts, and compliance-related matters.
