Me in a minute

We have worked hard to develop innovative solutions for our clients

Although I spent most of my early career providing outside general counsel representation to public companies, I now spend most of my time representing family offices, investment advisers and fund managers on a wide variety of corporate and regulatory matters. I also do a lot of governance and succession work for family and other closely-held businesses.
