What I enjoy the most about litigation is that you are constantly learning about new issues that arise with each and every lawsuit. You gain confidence from each case and they make you better suited to handle the next case.
Partner — Commercial & Business Litigation
The client should have the utmost confidence. They should know their case is being properly managed by the best team possible, that their best interest is our top priority, and that we are putting all of our efforts into meeting their objective, efficiently, in the most cost-effective way.
I want my clients to feel comfortable that I understand their business and where they're coming from. I want to learn what they do, how they do it, and why they do it. I talk to everyone I can, from the general counsel to the person in the field. You can’t write a brief or craft an argument that has the drama and verity of good storytelling unless you can tell the story in the client’s voice.
My real passion is teaching. I view what I do as teaching a judge, and ultimately a jury, what I’ve learned from my client and from experts in defending my client. It’s critical to have the ability to not only tell stories, but also to educate the audience about extraordinarily complex scientific and engineering issues.
