After representing a company in an offering or other transaction, you often become a general resource for their ongoing legal needs and help quarterback the relationship. I love that collaboration and the feeling that I’m making a difference in helping a management team achieve its goals.
Complex business transactions are unpredictable and challenging to manage. I believe one of the best things we can do for our clients is to efficiently break down tasks, identify priorities, communicate clearly across working groups, and enable the business and legal teams to focus on creative solutions to the key commercial problems with maximum focus and clarity.
I’m really motivated by the development – and purchase and sale – of groundbreaking projects, whether it’s high-speed rail connecting Dallas and Houston, complex infrastructure or a cutting edge renewables project. My focus is on the big picture and finding legal solutions to the critical business issues. I’m proud to work on tangible assets that people get to live with and benefit from for a long time after a deal is complete.
What I enjoy the most about litigation is that you are constantly learning about new issues that arise with each and every lawsuit. You gain confidence from each case and they make you better suited to handle the next case.
