In today’s landscape, it is easy for employers to be overwhelmed by the ever-evolving aspects of employment law at the federal, state and even local level. Relying on my years of experience addressing unique labor and employment topics for employers in multi-state jurisdictions and across industry sectors, I enjoy helping clients navigate employment matters with a level of confidence that, not only are they acting in compliance with applicable law, but also in a practical and efficient manner from a business perspective.
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.
I find counseling the most rewarding side of my practice. My clients are looking for someone to bring not just perspective, but also independence, to their investigations. In this day and age, I don’t know that you can say you’ve seen it all, but there isn’t any kind of complaint or investigation into workplace conduct that I would not feel equipped to handle.
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.
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.
Having spent many years working in both the UK and US, I have the experience to help multinational clients with their complex cross-border challenges as well as day-to-day HR issues. I aim for my clients to see me as a valuable part of their team, working alongside them to provide practical advice that gets to a solution as efficiently as possible.
