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.
Partner — Shareholder Litigation & Enforcement, Government Investigations & White Collar Defense
My decade in the SEC’s Division of Enforcement gives me singular insight into the current inner workings of government investigations—and my ability to work with regulators allows me to effectively advise my clients and protect their interests.
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.
Partner — Government Contracts, Export Controls & Economic Sanctions, and National Security Reviews (CFIUS)
Government contractors and global businesses operate in a complicated landscape. Our team has a rare depth of experience because we've spent years helping a diverse client base with contract disputes, challenges navigating export controls and economic sanctions issues, and matters implicating U.S. national security. We thrive on helping our clients succeed in a challenging environment.
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.
