I love the global nature of what I do. On any given day, I'm talking to clients in Brazil and an opposite number in Paris, and a lender in New York, and a buyer in Madrid. I don't know whether it's an art or a science, but explaining to a West African energy minister and a New York investment banker and a Brazilian oil and gas engineer how the deal has to work so they will all understand it and benefit from it is a consistent challenge and a lot of fun.
My practice deals with some of the most cutting-edge antitrust issues in the world. My work requires that I advocate for clients in complex matters where the law is often unsettled. I enjoy that challenge and I'm always working to find creative solutions for the companies I represent.
I work with creative people, risk-takers. When their moonshots succeed, they draw antitrust attention. To counsel and advocate for them, I first have to learn about the ways in which they are changing whole industries – that’s fascinating to me.
