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.
My goal is to focus on what is important and to be collaborative and constructive. When a deal closes, I want our clients to feel both that their interests were vigorously represented and that we got them across the finish line as painlessly as possible for all involved.
I love the intricacy of the tax code, and the fact that everything I do is like a little puzzle. I take the facts and I take the law and I say, 'How do I fit these together to get the best result for the client?' It can be challenging, but it’s always interesting. I’m helping people get the business deals that they want done in a timely, effective and efficient manner.
I take great satisfaction in partnering with sophisticated clients to help them solve problems in creative ways that maybe others who don’t understand the client or their interests as well would never have proposed.
I used to say that what I liked most about my job was trying cases. I still get a rush whenever I try a case to a jury, but when I really think about what I love most about being a labor and employment lawyer it's my long lasting friendships with talented human resources leaders who have trusted me to be a part of their team.
