I like the tangible nature of real estate, as opposed to businesses that merge in and out of existence. I like to be able to drive down the road and see a building that I’ve helped acquire, helped lease and then sold.
A lot of people would describe me as a ‘law lawyer. I really enjoy the tactical aspects of the law. For instance, with the cross-border litigation I’ve been involved in, you often have to look into both countries’ laws, how they differ, how they intersect. I love figuring out the mesh between two different legal systems and how you can use that to help your client. It’s like solving a puzzle.
Clients call when they have complicated transactions and need timely, thoughtful and commercial solutions. It’s always gratifying to be a part of the solution and help clients achieve their goals.
