I'm an aggressive litigator who's not afraid to take a case to court. Whether a case ends up in trial or we pursue a settlement, my goal is always to reach a quick, favorable, and strategic resolution for my clients.
Some days, I’m in federal district court defending enforcement cases, or in dialogue with EPA and DOJ and NGO lawyers to resolve them. Some days, at clients’ operations, working through their permitting strategies in support of development plans, or investigating compliance issues. So I get to do most things lawyers do, but with a focus on obligations imposed by the laws governing air quality.
My passion is working with smart people who have good ideas in the tech space. I enjoy advising emerging companies with cool technology; I can see what they’re trying to accomplish and help them get there in the best way possible, whether it’s growing their business, raising money or ultimately selling their business. I understand what the client is asking for because I’ve also been the client.
As technology and power generation have continued to evolve and grow exponentially, we have evolved as well by innovating financial and legal structuring and finding solutions that are embraced by all stakeholders in the zero and carbon neutral power space.
I’m really motivated by the development – and purchase and sale – of groundbreaking projects, whether it's a project to unlock the largest known lithium and boron deposit in North America, 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.
I bring a wealth and depth of information that can only be gained through more than 30 years of experience helping my clients meet their ever-evolving needs in the electricity, telecom, oil and gas, or water space. I’ve built strong relationships at the regulatory agencies and have demonstrated that we are solid partners working to achieve exemplary results.

One of the things I like best about my work is that I get to be deeply involved in my clients’ businesses. I like being the corporate quarterback for my clients and then working with them to find creative and efficient ways to help them grow their businesses and achieve their goals.
