Employment-related challenges can present some of the most important, and sensitive, issues that our clients face. I help them manage those matters by leveraging my experience as a litigator, transactional lawyer and advisor. Together, my colleagues and I provide highly practical, commercial advice and resolve sensitive employment matters efficiently and effectively.
The most interesting part for me is learning about how both my lender and borrower clients make money. Learning about their businesses, how they achieve success, and how they plan to continue that success. That understanding allows me to offer better counsel on a given transaction.
In my career I’ve touched on all aspects of the energy transactional spectrum. The experiences I have in one sector help me solve problems in others. In my view, the more diverse your practice is, the more you can bring to the table for your client.
My practice involves a lot of counseling. Most of the time I'm dealing with members of boards of public companies who are very well accomplished in their respective fields. But they're facing bet-the-company transactions, often for the first time. I’m helping really smart people accomplish their strategic objectives.
I find counseling the most rewarding side of my practice. My clients are looking for someone to bring not just perspective, but also independence, to their investigations. In this day and age, I don’t know that you can say you’ve seen it all, but there isn’t any kind of complaint or investigation into workplace conduct that I would not feel equipped to handle.
