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.
The most interesting part for me is learning about how both my lender and borrower clients make money. Learning about their businesses, how they achieve success, and how they plan to continue that success. That understanding allows me to offer better counsel on a given transaction.
In my career I’ve touched on all aspects of the energy transactional spectrum. The experiences I have in one sector help me solve problems in others. In my view, the more diverse your practice is, the more you can bring to the table for your client.
A lot of the value that someone in my position brings to the client is experience. Because of the volume of transactions that I have handled, I understand the market. I can tell clients, 'Here's what general partners are asking for. Here’s what limited partners are getting.'
We are fortunate to have clients who have entrusted us with their significant matters on a repeat basis over the years. I think the reason clients return is that they trust our judgment, as well as our responsiveness. When they choose V&E, they have access to a deep bench of experienced, well-trained lawyers across multiple relevant disciplines.
